How do you measure the salinity of your reef?

So many names! You should invent one, like the Climatic-flame-throwing-pink-lighting-thunder-bolt-hornet Acan. Then add Tyree and LE and it's mad nice.
Then sell it for millions of dollars
NO... THE GIRL IN MY AVATAR IS NOT FOR SALE! SO REFRAIN FROM ASKING PLEASE

Here are my reasons:
1) You only need a few drops of water to put on it. No need to submerge it like you do hydrometers (very handy since many of us only prepare a gallon or two of water at a time).
2) No need to worry about junk accumulating on the arm or glass tube.
3) No messing with tapping to get all the bubbles off the arm or glass tube
4) Works the same with ALL temperature of water.
5) Only takes about 10 seconds to check.
I used a hydrometer for a short period of time. I would NEVER go back. Best investment ever made for my tank.

it has the little 1.020 - 1.023 thing that tells you were it should be/ someone told me that that was wrong what do you think it is?!

I have the same one you have. I like to keep my water between 1.023 to 1.026 Every thing runs fine for me It has been said that most snails need a salinity level of 1.024-1.026 to live long term...Just a thoght.
Also dont overstock your tank with these. People have a tendancy to follow the 1 per gallon rule when they first start thier aquariums. There really isnt enough algae for them at this point, not to mention most snails pretty much only eat diatoms which can be scarce if you dont use tap water. Read Ron Shimeks new Invert book for more detailed info on snails.
This is not directed at you Travis, but just a tag along to what you stated.
