GLA Cal Aqua "Pearl" Co2 Drop Checker

Looks like a nice drop checker. GLA carries them for $50. Curious if anyone has this and can speak to its quality?

Those are actually their newest model (stocked within the past month or so) cause I was looking at them when I was setting my tank up. I ended up going with a $8 checker from eBay that works like a charm. Made my own 4dkh solution per another members post here.

A $5 checker from eBay will work just as well but if you don't mind spending the extra cash, they are nice. I own (and have owned) a number of Cal Aqua glass items and will vouch for their quality. Just as nice as ADA glassware IMO.

The pearl is awesome! I've got the cal aqua double check, it's great, but this new checker has both reference and indicator in the same space. Very clean looking!

I think it looks cool. I would only buy it for that reason. I bought the Oracle and have had it for 5+ years so they make good products. However, it's not like a drop checker needs something to compare to.
