A mag7 or a mag9.5 will both work fine. I also like Quiet One pumps. A Quiet one 3000 would work well too.

Just to make sure! That's either or right? A mag drive or a quiet one? I'll look into the quiet ones now

Alright! Is there one that's better? Just curious because they are about a $30 price difference. I'm fine with spending it as long as its worth it. If not I'm gonna go with the Quiet One.

I like the Quiet Ones better myself. Most people rave about the mags, but i've had my share of them fail prematurely.

I bought mine from marine depot. If i had to do it all over again, i would have bought from BRS:
Refractometer for reading salinity w/ Free Calibration fluid - English

Theirs includes calibration fluid for free. When i purchased mine, it was off considerably (.03 if I remember). I had to spend an extra $6 bucks + shipping to get calibration fluid.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks! I think I like yours.

Has anyone used the digital one? Is it worth the money?
