Thanks for the update. Well done.
I think the best thing now, just so that we can gauge where it's at and not introduce any potential confounders into the process, is:
* keep the KH at 3 (although I think ordinarily it might be recommended to go a degree or two higher - but let's keep it as it is for reason above);
* not to do any more water changes for the next few days;
* test each day, and add ammonia to 2ppm probably every other day;
* if ammonia starts to remain at 0 *and* nitrite drops below 1 ppm, dose 3 ppm ammonia once again.
Hope that helps.
