Might do that one day and starting cycling now so how many days should I leave it before I do water change? and how much water should I take out?

If you are cycling the tank empty you won't need to do a water change until the end of the cycle unless it stalls. If you are cycling with the a axolotl you will need to do a water change every time the ammonia gets above .25

You can purchase a freshwater test kit at any fish store. It will have ph, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. You will ends to test each of these to make sure your water is safe.

Think I'm getting a test kit tomorrow for the water so should all levels be at 0/neutral?

Ammonia and nitrite will be 0 when the cycle is complete it should show some nitrates

Will do and done an ammonia test today with no axolotl been in tank at all and I have between 0.5-1.0 in the tank already, I've done a water change and have an air stone to try circulate the water and I only changed the water on Sunday and now it's Wednesday? So is there anything I can do to reduce it and any reason why it is high already?
