"Case is handy."

Very easy, turn screw very slowly to calibrate. Used distilled water to calibrate, the screw is located under the rubber cap. It's a basic but reliable refractomer I use it for my aquariums. I don't want to deal with temperature correction or. Don't care much for having to post a review in order to activate warranty. Im using it for trying to create water conditions for amano zoes. Make sure to knock out the bubbles on the white dial by hitting it with your knuckle.

Even the smallest bubble will throw the measurements way, way off. It came with all that was listed in the in production description. All very easy and I feel as though I am getting an accurate salinity reading. So once your instant ocean shows a measurement. But there are some ways to keep on getting accurate readings. Too that makes it appear too cheap. Excellent piece of equipment for the price.
