Water Levels Reading=0?

I tested the water in my tank yesterday twice, just to make sure I wasn't getting false readings due to a mistake on my part, but:

Ammonia 0
Nitrites 0
Nitrates 0

Is it just me or is something not quite right? In all my other tanks, Ammonia and Nitrites are always 0, like they're supposed to be, but my Nitrates are always around 20ppm. What's going on with my new 75 gallon tank? When setting up the 75, I used a large established Eheim cannister moved from another overly stocked, albeit smaller tank.

Any ideas?
