Just out of curiosity, did you shake the second bottle of the nitrate test for at least 30 seconds if you are using a liquid test kit....check and make sure you test kit is not expired.

It is very possible but highly unlikely that with doing 25% water changes weekly then you might have zero nitrates. Could you perhaps skip a few extra days and see if a reading shows up? If it does then just do a slightly bigger change next time.

Each water change should reduce nitrate numbers by half.

Sounds like with the addition of the new fish an infection came with them. You may want to do a big water change and treat the tank with some medicine.
