Digital Thermometers?

Postby StoweCo » Fri Mar 16, 2018 9:24 am

Hey folks, looking to get a digital thermometer to accurately measure temp in my viv, and was looking for some reccomendations.

Amazon links are greatly appreciated, as well as some advice on the right way to set it up in the viv!

Thanks all!

You don't need anything too expensive. Just one that is reasonably accurate and uses a probe that you can secure in place. A couple of these would probably do the trick https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0017N8W90/ I'd mount one on the basking surface and one on the cool side surface so you can see the gradient and basking temp at a glance. It's also helpful to have an IR temp gun to spot check temps in and out of the tank https://www.amazon.com/Nubee-Temperature-Non-contact-Infrared-Thermometer/dp/B00CVHIJDK
