As Whiskey said, I would just change the water normally with the IO salt instead of the 100% WC.

If you are cooking your rock, it won't do any more cycling because of the rock no matter which salt you use. Simply start using IO salt in the cooking process. Then, if you end up with a tank with no old rock, you can do a 100% WC if you want.

what is oceanic natural sea salt? They make something other than their synthetic stuff?

I wouldnt think twice about swapping salt brands, just keep doing what you were doing with the whatever salt you've got on hand.
