I assume the slight increase in pH with the new salt wont be a concern?

Let me know how you get on with it!

Still not sure on the 5% over 4 weeks thing - reefrunner?

Large swings are more of a concern, if your tank is say 8.4 at its highest just before lights out & drops overnight to say 8.1 thats fine, if it drops more then that would be a problem, the same as a 8.0-7.7 would be ok.

I have changed salt brands 3 tim,es now, always done 10% water changes per week & so far haven't hurt anything............

Cheers Shelton.

Do you reckon 5% each week over 4 weeks is ok, just while I change over?

I can't see why you can't go 10% per week for a month & then go back to your 20% bi-weekly.....

Cheers Shelton
