Mixing two different salts
Just wondering ... is it OK to mix two different types of salt together?
I have about 8 gallons of Seachem salt water mix left over from a previous top-off on my mini-reef and need to do a water change on my main tank today using Instant Ocean salt mix.
Can I add the Seachem with the Instant Ocean and put it in my main tank? This will save me about six hours of waiting to make RO/DI water.
Thanks in advance.

I see no issues with it.
What you are doing is not much different than someone who is changing the salt mix with a regular water change.

I don't see a problem either, I have done it before with Instant Ocean & Oceanic salt mixes

Nothing wrong with it. The composition of the different salts may be alittle different(example one may contain more calcium than the other), but there won't be any ill effects in your tank.

I have done it when I switch buckets....ie enough salt left in the old buket to make a few gallons, but not enough for the total change. No problems at all
