New water test readings. Exciting!!!!

Ok, so I have a 55 gal tank with a 25 gal sump that has been up and running for about 6 months now and tonight I decided to do a random water test. First off Ill tell you about my livestock. I have 2 ocellaris clowns, 1 Coral Beauty angel, 2 Blue Damsels, 3 Blue leg hermits, 1 Green Emerald Crab, 1 Decorator Crab and 2 large snails (unknown). My readings, witch I tested with an API Master Test Kit read Ammonia 0, Nitrites 0, and Nitrates 0. PH at 8.2 and Salinity at 1.023. Is it just me or does this sound too good to be true?

No? I dont see why this is shocking.

Is the tank cycled and everything?

Yes, the tank is cycled completely however I felt it would be shocking because my Nitrates are at 0. I thought that is the most challenging. Most of what I read states that peoples Nitrate levels still read 5-10 ppm after even years of functioning.
