Excited about water testing since planted tank

So I'm about a month into my planted tank and I have had a super busy month and admitting I had not done a water change at all. So last Friday I wanted to check the ammonia, nitrites and nitrates in my tank. I have never had any ammonia or nitrites since I've had my tank (before it being planted) and nitrates have always been around 30-40 come time for a water change. I was expecting high numbers since it was a few weeks since the last change and nitrates were only at 10! Totally stoked! Plants look great and fish are happy.
