REVIEW
i had placed this in my tank with 320 lbs. of live rock well it fell off of the glass and under the live rock so i had to remove live rock to retrieve it. The hydrometer is somewhat accurate i now use magnets to hold it into place.

REVIEW
I bought this for my pico because it was small. But it won't stick to the glass with flow pretty much off. So u have to hold it in the tank to get a reading. Another thing about it is u can just fill it with water then take it out and read it, it has holes on top and bottom.

REVIEW
Nice idea but it doesn't work unless you turn all your pumps off, the flow makes the needle jump making it impossible to read. Save your money.

REVIEW
This would likely be great for permanent placement into a sump for a quick check on the salt levels. It is extremely sensitive to distance from the water level and being level though, and even at its most accurate readings, it is still not that accurate. If you dont have a hydrometer, don't make ...Read More

REVIEW
I have been using my refractometer for over two years and it always gave me accurate reading every time. I bought two of these hydrometers three months ago because I thought it would be nice if I could get a quick reading of the salinity level in my tank at anytime I want. Well, they both have been ...Read More
