I actually just asked this question myself, and got the answer i was looking for.

You can start switching over during your PWC's, but if you have anything extremely delicate in your tank, you may want to do small PWC's more frequently, just to see what the reactions of your tank would be. I'm switching from Oceanic to Seachem Reef Salt.

Just switch over, thats about it . I believe the RC has higher ALK than the IO so just don't do a HUGE water change.

Frequent smaller PWC`s will be OK.
