I don't generally post about my equipment, but I decided to buy a good quality pH meter that does continuous monitoring. It's set up on my small invert aquarium right now, but can be easily removed for getting readings on new salt water or the other tank.

I love the continuous readout of pH - I watched it during a water change and was able to see exactly now the new water affected the pH.

My old one was (relatively) inexpensive and went bad after about a year and half

Yes, we are an odd crew - we are entertained by the strangest things!

Does anyone use an sg or salinity meter with continuous readout? As far as I can tell, they are less popular than the pH meters.

Don't use any of the above!!! But we have an open system with constantly flowing seawater. If we change to recirc we do have a pH meter, conductivity monitor (posh salinity thingy!) and various test kits ready to go.


I just bought a digital lightmeter................does that count????
