If you have sensitive coral and especially SPS or clams, I would not suggest your regular routine. Coral bleaching and RTN have been linked to switching salts quite often. I would do ½ the amount of your normal weekly water changes for the first while until your animals have had time to adjust to the chemistry of the new salt. Too much too fast can lead to disaster.

I would not think my corals are too sensitive but better safe than sorry. I would rather keep my old schedule of once a month water changes but alas the cyano just won't quit. I am week 3 of my light acclimation so this won't be a biggee

I have some IO left so I might just use it up.
