Manufacturer Info

Marine Depot was started in 1998 by a self-professed reef geek and pre-med student Ken Wong. Ken envisioned a one-stop shop where customers could find everything they needed, from technical product specifications, reef aquarium information, expert advice on the hobby and friendly one-on-one customer support. Having grown from a one-man crew to being one of the world’s largest suppliers of reef and marine aquarium products, this very core philosophy still lives strong in the Marine Depot culture 19 years later.

good refractometer for the price
reviewerbadge
PROS
inexpensive and gets the job done just as good as my more expensive JbJ refractometer does
CONS
the pin in the plastic window is rusting. I am sure eventually it will interfere with the plastic window to freely move and sit on the water sample properly
REVIEW
good refractometer. decent build quality, held the calibration for the entire year I used it before a move to a different state led me to tear down my tank.

PROS
Easy to use, great consistency, hold calibration well
CONS
Low build quality
REVIEW
I had the cheap chinese ones you get on ebay, I'm sure I've lost a frag or 2 from it. The ebay one I had couldn't hold calibration. I would calibrate with calibration fluid, take my readings 2-3 times. When I didn't get consistent readings I calibrated again and find my settings were off.

PROS
easy to use and clean (clean it after use and dry it...no rust!)
CONS
a bit fuzzy on the reading scale. (it's not my eyes I tried using a camera)
REVIEW
Gets me in the ballpark. It's not that specific as the blue line is fuzzy even when focused but when your required range is 1.022-1.026 it really doesn't matter.

REVIEW
Okay, so I just want to mention here is that I don't leave reviews. But when I do its for something I like a lot.
