Just got the refractometer and found out the salt level was too low... Now I know why the shrimp died :-/

I am pleased it was nothing more serious, still a shame though! All you must do now is ensure you have a stable and trusted source of test solution - RO / DI will be 0 and you can calibrate it every time you test. Refractometers are very sensitive to knocks and bumps so keep it calibrated. I'm glad you got to the bottom of your dilemma!

Thank you for suggesting a refractometer. And I do have an RO... All is well now.
