Refractometer

I am in the market for one. Any suggestions on a particular model and where to get one? They seem to be in the $50.00 range for a base model up into the $100.00 range. Should I see if my LFS has one or would I get a better deal buying it on-line?

Thanks....

You will get a better deal on-line. No need for the high dollar ones. Link has them on sale now. $42.99

I got it also. It works really weel, and you will be able to see the HUGE difference in measurements between that and a hydrometer...

I don't know if it is still valid, but last month when I ordered at drsfostersmith, I used a promo code of: 19822762 and that changed the price to $39.99
