If you're getting 0 nitrates in your tank you must not have any fish in there creating waste. When you have a reading on nitrates this is ow you know that you have competed a cycle as you see a reading on ammonia, then it'll 0 out. After that you will see a reading on nitrIte then it will 0 out. Than you will get a reading on nitrAte.
