  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!

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
