Hydrometers and Salinity Refractometers - We recommend always to use a salinity refractometer when testing your specific gravity or salinity levels. Refactometers are far more accurate than hydrometers, giving you much more control on your tank levels. We recommend to run a SG of 1.025-1.026 on a saltwater reef tank with corals. If doing a fish only system you can run your salinity lower if wanted. We have different brands and options for refactometers and hydrometers. When buying a refractometer be sure it has calibration solution included or you also purchase some seperately.
