I made the mistake of using a hydrometer until my corals melted from high salinity. I switched to using this afterwards and my salinity has been perfect ever since. The calibration is simple and it did take a few minor adjustments but since it settled in it is dead on when I check every week before checking my salt water.

Buy this... Better than and of the cheap plastic hydrometers. By George on 12/30/2013

Well built and for the price, unbeatable. I managed to get this on sale for under 20 here at BRS during their sale. Even at full price, this is a lot better and more accurate than using a hydrometer and the price difference isn't even that great. Save yourselves the trouble and use this.

Been using a hydrometer for the past 5 years and finally decided to purchase one of these. Very well built and included case makes for easy and safe storage. Only problem I have is the calibration fluid was not included in my package, but for the price, still a great purchase.

This Refractometer is well built and includes calibration fluid so you know you are right where you want to be. Much better than a hydrometer and easier to use. Three small drops on the lense and look thru the tube towards light.

Everything is as advertised and very very high quality. My only complaint is it was delivered 3 days after the predicted delivery date.

I just started in the salt water hobby at the beginning of October and since then I had used the swing arm hydrometer figuring it had to be close enough. Well I picked up this refractometer during BRS's doorbuster sale and all I have to say is why didnt I get one of these to begin with? Super easy to calibrate and use and it gives a peace of mind that no hydromter can ever give. If you are just starting out, or have been in the hobby for years and never got one, I recommend that you do yourself the favor and pick this up and never play the swing arm guessing game again

I'm a firm believer that the person who buys quality cries only once. And with a price like this the tears were at a real minimum. I tested against my plastic hydrometer and found a .005 difference in results. I don’t really have a way to confirm which tester was the inaccurate one, but I’m going to assume for now that it’s the cheap, uncalibratable, mass produced, plastic one.

Used a hydrometer for many years. Decided to upgrade to this refractometer and glad I did. Easy to calibrate with included fluid and readings are more accurate.

I got this item on the holiday doorbuster sale. I already had it in my wish list for the holidays, but I couldn't pass it up when it dropped to almost half price. Single handily one of the best purchases I have made for my tank. There is no more guessing If the arrow is pointing at a number or not. Two drops of water point towards the light and you have an exact read out of your salinity. BRS is the best. No need to shop around because BRS always has the best price.
Worth it. By Andrei on 12/9/2013

What can I say. It's way better than a hydrometer. Faster, easier. The calibration fluid alone makes it worth $40 here instead of $25 on amazon. The only thing I don't know and it doesn't seem to say anywhere is if the calibration fluid needs to be at the temperature that you'll be measuring at. So since my house is at 68 degrees and the tank is at 79...

I 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.

I 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.
