That nitrates are 0 in a cycled tank is quite weird.

Can you post an image of the tests with the colour chart though please just so everyone can be sure that you are reading them correctly.....if using paper strips and not the liquid, they are often inaccurate and give false positives

Agreed...the water is definitely "off"...

Redness like that is almost classic ammonia levels being too high

How often are you changing the water and are you de-chlorinating properly?

I'd expect redness around the gills in that case.
