OK my livestock is:
1 red head gobie
I know its short but because I am moving to a diffrent continent in about 2 months I am not getting anything else. my gobie is in the tank with:
6-8 hermits south american reds and blue legs
1 peppermint shrimp
7-12 mushroom corals
and some polypy thingy looks like mini star coral sept not glowing green.
well my questions is how much of a water change should I be preforming now due to my really under stocked tank? 5%?10% what? thanks any info will be nice!.

Have you checked the import laws in Australia? They may not allow you to bring the fish in.

How often are you doing them now?

I'd do 5% every week or 10% every other week in that tank.

I'm not taking them to australia. but for the next two months I guess I will do a 10% every two weeks instead of 15-20% every two weeks.

With your tank being lightly stocked the 10% every 2 weeks should work well. you have almost no bioload and inverts add almost nothing to that
