refractometer, can someone explain what this is vs. a hydrometer?
Where can you get one? and Do I need one?

A refractometer is a much more accurate testing device for salinity. I really don't know exactly how it works. I could speculate but I'd rather not here. They cost from $60-$120 and most online dealers who have a lot of reef stuff will carry them. Do you need one? Probably not. Unless you're really going to get into this in a big way, I'd probably stick with the hydrometer for now. JMHO.
