If the Hydrometer is Like Mine (Oceanic) All ya gotta Do is Dunk the entire Unit into the Water to fill it up, there is an Overflow type thing, this is okay, it is how it works. Once the water has leveled off, Look at the Pointer needle thing. It should be pointing to some numbers in a Guage.
After you are done measuring, be sure to rinse it in fresh water, otherwise the Pointer wont function properly.
Did any of this make sense?

I tried that but it looks odd. I don't know if I'm doing it right or not. Well, all I know is that the baby is doing GOOD! He is running around like there is no tomorrow. :)

Woon is still doing great. He's pimping his aquarium. [He's changing shells every time I turn around. I moved closer to the coast and went to the ocean and actually brought him home some fresh salt water. Things are going well!

Just wanted to let ya'll know that Woon is doing great. Still alive and kicking. He has moved further north with the lady who originally found him on the beach and gave him to me. He has molted and she called me all upset that he was dead. But a week later she called back saying "It's a miracle!" :hlol: I had told her the first time he was probably molting. Anyway, he's still alive and well and I want to say thank you all for your help in helping me set up his environment! :)
