    Hey guys.

    Is it possible to go from natural sea water to a salt mix with ro without starting from scratch?

    Sure it is

    Start using it for your Normal water changes.

    All the usual apply, use a good salt, goo R/O from a trusted source etc:peroni:

    Yes, absolutely.
    Agreed, best to do it this way instead of one big change so as not to shock the system.

    What have you tried and if ur system is new then you will probably need some clean up crew like hermits - snails to mop up the extra food.
