No, I've switched twice without any effects to my fish, corals, etc. Starting the switch with smaller water changes is a good idea though.

cindy is right it should not cause any major problems. I first used oceanic salt back when it caused a large calcium jump - i switched to instant ocean and it works fine.

I'll second the slow change caution. Make small water changes over time with the new salt.
