You're not getting any readings because that's what cyano feeds off of is nitrates and phosphates! Keep up your water changes ( bigger and more frequently). And make sure you are using RO/DI water. Not tap

It might be because I'm on my phone and the pics are wee, but I can't see any cyano. There might be some diatoms tho.

How old is your tank? Cyano and diatoms are usually just part of the cycle
