    In the spirit of continuing to try and better myself in reefkeeping practice and knowledge, I finally broke down and bought myself a refractometer. I had been resistant to this in the past due the cost of the instrument. But I must now concede that it is probably one of the best purchases I have...

    Yes I know you have all heard it before, but I have experienced it myself this time.

It arrived last night, so my...

    I had always used the Instant Ocean and Deep Six Hydrometers for salinity readings and assumed they were relatively close. The Instant Ocean always measured 1.023 and the Deep Six gave me 1.025. On a whim I decided to buy a refractometer from Sam @ Aquabuys just because his prices are so good...

I know about the air bubbles on the arm, I would tap it lightly until...
