    Where to buy good "cheap" refractometer in Ottawa/Hull

    I decided to scrap my Coralife Hydrometer and do things right.

    I noticed Ivan has one for $49.99 but so far has not answered his phone and I am unsure if he keeps them in stock since I need one today.

    Anywhere else I should call?

    I believe he generally keeps them in stock. Place your order on-line, he'll respond.

    If anyone else is interested in getting a refractometer... we have another batch on order. They should arrive late next week(early the following).

    There's pretty much two types of every item in this hobby...good, and cheap...the problem is you can't seem to get both at the same time

    So I guess the same type of rules apply as it does for fast modded cars.

    Cheap, Fast, Reliable.. If you only pick two the 3rd cant be achived.

    I got some calibration flid that was exactly 35ppt and it was reading 36ppt so pretty damn close if you ask me.

    Best 50$ I ever spent so far.
