If you have algae you have nitrates. The cyano is eating it up thats why you are reading 0. Thats why people use Macro algaes because they will out battle the micro for the nutrients and then help stop the bad algaes in your tank.

you can buy hang on the back ones you dont have to have a sump. i have some in my display and have mangroves hanging along the back of my tank. I wouldn't worry about it since you have a new set up. Like i was saying cyano is part of the cycle. Keep using RO/DI water and besure to clean out the canister filter where the live rock is so you dont get a build up and you should be fine
