Good point, Bang. I forgot to mention not to even use SG at all with the refrac.

Do any of you folks use the PinPoint Salinity Monitor?
http://www.mops.ca/products/TEAM-SALMON.htm
I'm a computer guy by trade and I am drawn to gadgets, not to mention lights and buttons.

Would this Salinity Monitor be a good investment or is it over-kill?
PinPoint also makes a pH monitor that looks very similar. {They would look pretty snazzy side-by-side. I could make the inside of my cabinet look like a little recording studio.}

I used a seatest hydrometer for about a year and hated every test. Always had to shake off little bubbles and I was just never confident in the readings. I spent the cash on a refractometer and I LOVE IT! It's an ATC model as well so I just take water sample and measure, there's never any question to the reading. IMO, it's expensive, but worth EVERY penny!

Never used one myself but you can get the exact same thing from J&L and save the shipping charge...

Cheers

Same here. Seatest works great after some use.
