Refractmotor is my suggestion. Unless you have an extremly small tank salinity itsnt going to change wildly over a short period of time so a monitor isnt really neeeded excempt for those who want instant results.

If you get a refractometer, i would suggest getting one that has auto-temperature calibration.
