    I would like to get some opinions/feed back on these two pieces of equipment? I've been using a " Instant Ocean" hydrometer for about a year now, with no problems. Thinking of purchacing an refractometer. I remember the old saying "if it's not broken don't fix it". So I thought I would bounce it...

    Long story short - the floor in my room does not seem to be strong enough to support the ~600lb fish tank. Therefore, I've decided I'm forced to sell and probably move down to a ~20 gal if that. I have a complete setup sans livestock (thank god). Here's the list: - 36"x18"x18" 50 Gallon Glass...

    Well, there's $60.00 out the window. The clam was doing great since I first set up the tank in July. I guess I raised the salinity too fast (because my crappy Instant Ocean hydrometer was way off). I just got a new refractometer and when I tested the water, it was around 1.019, even though...

I know these things aren't the most accurate so I trusted that it was wrong since this is real ocean...
