    Mixing salt

    Would mixing one brand of salt with another brand to do a water change be ok?

    I hope no i've used the same bucket of salt and added some here and there when i see a good deal on salt.

    i didn't figure there would be any bad effects
    if anything there would be a variety of nutrients of dificiencies that i would compensate for with additives anyways
