Rereefer here... that is to say years ago I had a 300 gallon and stepped away from the hobby because I got too busy with life and that tank kept us busy.
We are back again with something a bit more manageable, a 55.
Our goal this time was to make things as simple as possible and nothing could be simpler to use than this refractometer. I test my tank and water change water to ensure a perfect match, easily, quickly, and reliably using the supplied calibration fluid and automatic temp control.

Replaced my old float meter with one of these. Much more accurate and easier to read. A must have item.

Calibrate it, use it and it works. I had some problems with getting my conductivity probe calibrated but once it was the refract, the probe and a hydrometer all have the same readings.
I love it By mfief on 6/27/2014

Easy to use and keeps you from having to worry about the little air bubbles that get on the arm of the hydrometer changing your reading

This refractometer is made of high quality materials with a good weight to it. The added bonus of coming with calibration fluid is a plus. This is a must have in this hobby, don't rely on an old swing arm.

Great, easy to use, accurate refractometer. Bought slightly cheaper refractometer elsewhere and had to return it 3 times. This one easy to adjust and easy to read. Spend the extra 10 bucks and get this one.

I'm very happy with this purchase. It is easy to calibrate and easy to use. Plus, it's a pretty cool gadget.

This. THIS. I love how easy it is to read, it even works well in pretty low light. I was very pleased with the quality of the piece. It weighs quite a bit, but heavier means sturdier, and when you've got wet hands, that means a lot! Calibration is super simple, and can be performed in less than a minute. The case is well padded, and has a firm locking clip to keep it closed. A very good product!

4 out of 5 By Daniel on 5/4/2014

The refractometer itself is sturdy and reliable. If your upgrading to better test equipment this the best tool to measure salinity/spec. gravity there is. The only reason I didn't give it a fifth star is because of the case. The inside of the case is solid and protects the refractometer well, BUT the latch on the outside of the case broke when I first opened it and the case doesn't shut. All in all I definately recommend getting this...just don't be rough with the latch on the case.
One of my better investments By Gps on 4/28/2014

Probably the best forty dollars I've spent in this hobby thus far. After using a hydrometer I had for beer making for a couple months I put the refractometer in with an order of other supplies and it's made checking my salinity far easier and without my having to worry about the hydrometer giving an accurate reading. Also with the hydrometer it required me to take out 3/4 of a cup of water to do one reading with the Brs refractometer all it takes is a few drops.

I like the simple way this works. Easy and quick with no electronics to mess up.
