Provided you continue to use a conditioner like Prime at partial water changes you should have no problems. Prime will detoxify the ammonia in the water so it won't harm the fish; I believe it does this by converting ammonia to ammonium [which is basically harmless to fish], but I stand to be corrected. In any case, the detoxified ammonia or ammonium will then be consumed by nitrosomonas bacteria, or used by live plants if there are any in the tank.
Most test kits read ammonia and ammonia as "ammonia" so if you test your tank water it will probably still show; but the appearance of your fish being normal will mean it is ammonium, so not to worry.
