Sounds like makers of Deep six want you to buy more salt!!!! LOL!!! I would definately get a refractometer. If you get 3 different hydrometers, all will read a little different. Hydrometer was one of my better investments

So, until I can get a refractometer...should I go until my salinity reads 1.021 on my deep six, and assume it's around 1.025-1.026? I recall a friend telling me it took more than the salt they expected to reach 1.025 on the deep six. I just don't have the money for a refractometer yet. Suggesstions?

Now I'm all selfconcious.

I can't afford a Refracto right now and I use a Deep Six hydrometer

Well my DeepSix was only off .001 SG's according to my refrac so mine was pretty accurate. YMMV....

-sigh- Anyone know if your run-of-the-mill $45 refractometers on ebay are any good? Or does anyone know of a decent one that's less than $85?

You can find several at online fish stores from $40 and up. Look around. I think I would buy a new one. There is no telling how others treated their equipment.
