How much of a water change i do?

Hello again sorry I feel like a nag but.... I recently just found out that my tap water has a reading of .25 ammonia. So I went out and got a RO filter and is getting installed today.

My question is---

~So do I do a 25%/50%/75% or even complete water chance??

Ps....my PH is 8.0,both no2&no3 are both 0' idk if this information will help with my question in any way.

Thanks again in advance.

I suggest a 20-25% ever week. If ur ammonia is high in the tank, do a 50% now.

It's been a steady .25 ammonia reading in my tank. I started cycling aug 20th but had to restart cycle. Only reason I didn't check my own water is the person who checked it didn't tell me everything in my water SMH.

Tank may not be cycled... Just a waiting game.
