Digital ph reader

Hi there,
I've seen some digital ph reader for aquarium on eBay. I've never used them and was wondering if anyone used them or using them?
Is it any good or just gonna waste my money and might lose my fish for wrong reading?

Hi. When you buy The "digital pH reader" new, it will come with a solution that you will use to calibrate it. So you'll have accurate reading. Mine came with a 7.0pH solution. I dipped the probe in the solution and adjusted the pH monitor to 7.0. There are other solutions. So you'll adjust the pH monitor depending on the solution that you have. I calibrate mine once a month just to be safe. IMO, it is the best way to monitor tank's pH level.

Why would you lose your fish over a PH issue? The most important thing about PH is that it's stable, after that the fish takes over to adjust. I'm not saying you do or don't need a fancy new toy, but the fish won't die if you don't.
