  1. Default Accuracy of Thermometers

    0 Not allowed!
    Up until today I was using one of those Metal looking Hand on the Side of the Tank Thermometer. Mind you, this Temperature Gauge is probably 15 years old. ;-)
    Today I bought your Typical Suction Cup Glass Tube Thermometer. It's made by Aqua Culture.
    The old one reports 4 degrees higher than the new one. I tend to think the new one is the correct reading. But I don't really know, do I?
    When in the store today I saw a new version that is Digital and sticks on the outside of the tank. Are those any good?
    Any info on Thermometers would be helpful. Thanks!

    I have used the marina digital thermometers for years now and find them highly accurate
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
