water change question

my 20 gallon tank has been up and running for about 2 months now. My diatoms are finally dying off and the tank is starting to look good. I have been doing 25% weekly water changes. My water is testing 0ppm on everything. I was thinking about cutting back the water change to 10% every two weeks. Would that be ok or should I stick to my original amount ? I only have 2 clowns and 2 chromis with and assortment of snails and a serpent star.

10% should be fine but keep a check on your nitrates if they start to climb increase your water changes this should help bring them back down to a reasonable level
