The summary says it all, this is a must have for all saltwater aquarium owners. The refractometer comes preset for the most part, just make sure its in focus used like a monocular. Open clear lid, use eye dropper that's provided with kit to get a drop of water you want to test, close lid and hold it up to light, very easy to read and super accurate. I realize your thinking $40 for a refractometer or like $8 for a cheap float type, well just pay the $40 you will never regret it! The $8 cheap float will prolly work for a yr and wont be half as accurate as the hydrometer and until your fish suffer cuz your salinity is off and you cant tell because of the cheap float and you figure it out after losing your $100 fish or more. It comes with calibration fluid in case calibration is off, just buy it even a novice and follow the instruction on use.

I don't know why I waited so long to get a refractometer, this is so much easier and more accurate than a hydrometer. Bundled with the calibration fluid is a plus, even if you look at Amazon if you purchase the refractometer plus the calibration fluid it is around the same price, I'd rather order from BRS because I know what I am getting.

I have the Milwaukee M887 digital refractometer and I have to say that I think this ATC refractometer is much more reliable. Using the calibration fluid with this device is a breeze. Simple to use and this is a must have item for any saltwater hobbyist. I recommend this over "big green".

I don't know how I been getting by with the Instant Ocean Hydrometer that I have been using for all these years! I finally broke down and bought the Refractometer. Wow, what a big difference between the two reading that i was getting.. I was getting a reading of 1.028 w/ the Hydrometer and w/ the Refractometer my reading was perfect 1.023, right where I like to keep my tanks at. If you're going to get into this hobby this is a must buy! HIGHLY recommended...

Multiple measurements are consistent and with the 1.26 calibration solution they are accurate.

I had an old refractometer from another site that I had been using for years. Earlier this year, it started losing calibration between uses, so it was time to replace it. This refractometer was cheap, arrived quickly, and came with a bottle of calibration fluid to boot.
Again, not much to say here... great value. It just works!
