Tropical fish benefit from being in an aquarium with a consistent temperature. The Top Fin Liquid Crystal Thermometer sticks securely to the exterior of the tank, and clearly displays the temperature, so even slight fluctuations can be recognized and taken care of, if needed.
Reads in Fahrenheit and Celsius and is approx. 5" in length.
I got mine for free a few years ago and I was forced to use it after my JD broke the glass one in the tank. I don't think it ever actually told the correct temp., but it was close enough for temporary use! It was also REALLY difficult to get the sticky off the glass! I'd only use it again if I absolutely had to and only for temporary(sp) use!
I lost an outstanding yellow lab to cold water because of the false readings I got from this turkey.It worked fine for about 4 months lulling me into a confidence it does not deserve. When my fish started becoming lethargic I checked all my water parameters, ph, ammonia, ect... and, the temperature reading on this piece of junk. Everything was fine. The next day the lab was dead and I checked the temp with my pool thermometer. The Top Fin was off by 12 degrees. I will never again buy a liquid crystal thermometer.
Got this for free. The temperature wasn't accurate, always below few c from standard. The thing I hate the most was that, when I ripped it off, it took me a long time to clean those sticky things left on my tank glass.
