@Paul87, what test kit are you using? In a cycled tank your nitrate should be more than zero so either your tank is not cycled or your test results are incorrect.

It's also a bit odd that your pH is exactly 7 but it shouldn't be a problem as long as it is stable and matches your tap water pH results.

Nitrates are produced and Unless you have plants (and a lot of them) the nitrates won’t just disappear.

If your beneficial organisms/bacteria are healthy they produce nitrates.

Marine tanks take advantage of anaerobic organisms which do not work as well in oxygenated freshwater tanks.
