I've got the same one and thought mine did not come with instructions either until I took all the foam out and it was in the lid. Wasn't much help then because I found all my answers right here.

Funny thing. I'm an engineer with a few decades of experience with electronics and sophisticated testing and measurement equipment. Even had some college physics classes in light wave refraction way back when. However, until I started visiting this site, I had no idea there was an inexpensive, hand held refractometer made for aquarium use.

As mentioned, I have the refractometer being discussed in this thread and it is very cool. Interestingly enough, my Instant Ocean hydrometer is pretty dang accurate when compared to my refractometer.

My hydro was .00500 off, not much to us, but a lot to the fish.
