How do you measure the salinity of your reef?

Please tell me other wise and would you nice folks using hydrometers tell us what is actually in your tank? Are you beginners like me or do you have a well established tank with thriving corals and fish???

I use a glass bubble hydrometer, and it worked great until I dropped it X) I calibrated my new one against a refractometer, and it's off by .001. The thing is, it will ALWAYS be off by .001, regardless of what salinity I'm trying to acheive, so I'm still getting results that are just as accurate. I just can't justify paying 10x as much to get the same results. You don't have any issues with gunk building up on the glass if you don't leave it in the tank. I can't think of anything easier to clean salt off of than the outside of a smooth glass cylinder.

Refractometer here.....I can see no reason not to and plenty of reasons not to use a swing arm...
