Congrats on the new arrivals!
It's possible not to have one that spiked high enough to be testable, also possible that it happened quickly enough that you didn't catch it, or that your plants were able to handle the ammonia before it was a problem (though with swords, this seems unlikey) Depending on how you cycled your tank (I'm sorry, I don't think I saw that thread?), it's also possible that there is enough of a bacterial colony present in there to handle the bioload of the 4 new additions. . . lol, not very helpful, am I? There are a lot of different possibilities!
I would *expect* to see something within the three days, so while it's always good to keep an eye on things in a new tank, I say count your blessings on this one - and it looks like you have seven of them! ^_^
Have your nitrAte levels shifted at all?
