Unless you keep corals then it should be 1.025 or so.

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

I would get more than one hydrometer though, especially since my little one in the tank says it is 1.038 (not likely) but my normal one says 1.023 and my fish and CUC are doing fine... hmm... which one should I trust... LOL

This is what you should trust for $30

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

Accurate and easy to use. No dunking of the hydrometer and its without a doubt more reliable and accurate

Maybe I'm just that anal that I want to use a spectrometer. Really figure out what's in my water.

Thank you Carey for the link and correcting me as politely as you did. Yes a refractometer is what I ment.

The problem with hydrometers are they are so hit and miss
