Digital Testers

Greetings All,

In my quest to do this as accurately (and lazily) as possible, I am looking at digital testers.

Few different kinds out there, and wanted to see which are appropriate for our craft.

1. Temp & Ph testers- Seem to range from simple (temp and Ph), to complicated (Temp, Ph, TDS, EC). Do we need to know Total Dissolved Solids and Electrical Conductivity (or are these part of Ph???)? And do we need Ph beyond .1?

2. Refractometers- From $40 - $150. Do we need more than just Specific gravity to +/-0.001, and Salinity 1-100 ppt? Seem to be a lot with other fancy stuff...

Sorry for the long post, but I hope this helps others that are wading through all of the aquarium hobby add ons (you mean I don't just buy a tank and airstone? 8O ).


P.S. If you are thrilled about one of your testers, and want to put a link in, that would be great.
