2nd new tank Cycling opinions

I am starting my 2nd reef and am about a week into the cycle. Nitrite is going up and ammonia down a bit, Nitrate on the rise. Nitrite is very high and I really want to do a water change. I have read many opinions on this in articles, some say yes others no. I have always done them. What are some opinions here?

BTW, 55 gallons, ro/di with 4" DSB and 50lbs LR. 10 very large Atlantic hermit crabs to add some life.

If you are worried about the Hermits then do a water change if not leave it be it will be fine.

You never realize how much you love something till it's gone.

Water change. More life will survive if you keep the water less toxic.
