I have no idea, I'm not fond of Red Sea salt, so I guess I would consider it bad.

When switching salt mixes, you simply switch the salt you use for water changes. You would not want to do a 100% waterchange when switching salts. When I switched I went from 25% gross volume waterchanges by weekly to 12.5% gross water changes weekly, for about a month then went back to the regular routine. It worked for me.

I did check my mg level before switching salts. It was in check.
