Waterchange after cycling

When my Nitrites are at 0 (they're currently at 2.5, Ammonia is 0), I'm going to do a waterchange to get Nitrates down (currently at about 15) etc. before I add any fish.

I have a 36 gallon tank - how much water would you guys recommend I change? 30%? 50%?

Thanks

If there is not fish in the aquarium, I have always done 30-50% after the cycle.

okie, 30% will be enough then? As long as 'trates are down after it.
