great product By cory on 12/2/13cory would recommend this product to a friendEveryone should have one these. It is easier to read and use than my old hydrometer. Its a snap to calibrate. i will never go back to a hydrometer again
Just in time By Eric on 11/30/13Eric would recommend this product to a friendI got this just in time before I ruined my tank using a regular swing arm type hydrometer. I have been gradually increasing my tank from fresh to brackish and now full marine for my Green Spotted Puffer. I was reading 1.0185 on the hydrometer and with the new calibrated refractometer I realized my tank is really at 1.022 sg. And yes I did wash the old one properly after each use and verified the new readings with the lfs.
Excellent value and perfromance By shane on 11/27/13shane would recommend this product to a friendI ordered this product and was skeptical at first. I opened the box and tested it with reference solution and compared that to another meter and its reference solution and it was right on the money. Built with quality and you should only ever need to buy it once.
Fast, Simple, Accurate By Kevin on 11/9/13Kevin would recommend this product to a friendThis is the tool you need for quick, easy, reliable salinity measurements. Solid build, easy to read and calibrate.

Excellent By Ashley on 10/2/13Ashley would recommend this product to a friendEasy to use and calibrate. I feel a lot more confident about testing my salinity than with my hydrometer. Loved getting the free NSW. Great price too! Tks BRS!
Much better than the aquarium hydrometers By Kenneth on 9/27/13Kenneth would recommend this product to a friendIt may take a few seconds to calibrate it and I check the calibration each time I use it, I hated the hydrometers having to get just the right amount of water in them and find a level place to sit them for the pointer to settle, it's easy to clean up when done, I only wish the pipette was made better I don't see it lasting long! I stopped using it and use a Glass Eye Dropper now.
Easy By Joshua on 9/19/13Joshua would recommend this product to a friendGreat refractometer. Kicks my old hydrometer's rear. Once calibrated (which is easy) it was stupid easy and fast to get my salinity read and fine tuned. I think my tank will be much happy now that I will be giving it dead on salt water from here on out, as opposed to my "close enough" water I get from my hydrometer.
Don`t mess with sucess!! By Tbone on 9/17/13Tbone would recommend this product to a friendI had a hydrometer, gave me different readings all the time, bought this - couldnt be easier- nough said!!!
Great By Neel on 9/15/13Neel would recommend this product to a friendThis is a great value, since you get a calibration fluid also. Easy to read values to make sure you tank is at proper salinity.
great product , fair price By easy to use on 9/2/13easy to use would recommend this product to a friendthe refractometer is simple to use and very accurate.

Refractometers are one of the best pieces of equipment an aquarist can purchase. It not only ensures accurate measurements of salinity but it is also infinitely easier to use and read.
Comes with the following:
- Carrying Case
- Screw Driver for calibrating
- Adjustable eyepiece
- Salinity Calibration Fluid. Calibrates to sg 1.026 (35ppt)
Steps to calibrate your unit:
1) Using the dropper place a few drops of the solution on the glass and close the lid.
2) Looking through the unit and turn the screw until the unit reads sg 1.026 (35ppt)
3) Screw the cap back on your calibration solution for storage. It is important that the cap is on tight or water will evaporate and ruin the solution.
*** Do not calibrate using RO/DI water as this will not give accurate readings***
