Running low on the regular Instant Ocean salt and since I'm planning to switch over to Reef Crystals because I will be converting to reef soon enough. Is it okay for my next water change to mix my left over of IO with the new RC? The way I prep the water is I let the salt mix for at least a 24hrs with a powerhead and heater.

Should be fine. Just check your salinity before you add it into the tank.
