    Hi guys

    I want to get my hands on a Refractometer and a Test Kit this weekend...I'm around Durban so Info regarding Shops in that area would be helpful...

    Do I do Digital Refractometer or a Hand Held one...? Which is cheaper and which Make and/or Model is worth it's price...

    The Test Kits...What Makes are in SA and which is better....Seachem...Tropic Marin...Salifert...Elos...? Someone mentioned somewhere on a Thread that LaMotte was better when it came to some or other individual "chemical" test and then someone told me about a ph pen...whats the difference between the "strip's" and pen...?:blush:

    Hi there

    Salifert test kits are quite reasonably priced. I use Sera

    As regards the refractometer, I found hand held much better to use and the one from Milwaukee is the best - a bit pricey though but well worth it

    Good Luck
