Judging by those readings it looks like you are reaching the end of a full cycle. You should have zero ammonia and zero nitrite, any reading at all and the water is toxic to the fish. The nitrate is less dangerous but should be kept below 40ppm which is achieved by regular part water changes. Test daily until the nitrite and ammonia drop to zero then do a 50% water change to reduce the nitrate.

Good to hear, look after the water and the fish will look after themselves, the solution to pollution is dilution. :-)
