I also cant seem to get any nitrate reading I've upped the Ei dose and been feeding heavy so looks like the plants are just munching through it.
API test kits, are you shaking the second reagent bottle well before testing???
I've been testing NO3 and Fe consumption for over a year.
The highest daily plant consumption of NO3 I've achieved is 3.5ppm, greater plant mass than your tank.
Highest daily Fe has been about .015ppm to .010ppm, this is harder to measure though.
Your tank looks nice!
I'd recommend starting a journal here to display your success and Q&A.
