The short answer is most of it. At that level I'd guess at least 80%, then see what the level is. And you're right, the high nitrate level is the result of not doing water changes, which are (usually) unneccessary during a fishless cycle. For the cycle to be complete the ammonia should be fully processed to nitrate within 12 hours.

Aye, Ammonia & Nitrite are back to 0 within 12 hours so I think I'm about good to go. I did think myself that the water change would need to be a big one but thought it best to check on this. Thanks for your help James!
