I had my Oscar break my top fin floating thermometer. Besides finding and removing the glass is there anything else I need to do. I would not imagine these have mercury or anything dangerous in them since I would imagine this is something that can happen regularly. Also any recommendations on digital thermometers? I have learned my lesson with the glass ones.

Here is a quick update. I now have a coral life digital thermometer in this tank. As far as the old thermometer the red liquid inside was not broken. Just the outside shell. The little balls (not sure what they are made out of) were all in one corner. I was able to grab a couple scoops of gravel, and I got them all. I should be fine now. I have learned the hard way NO GLASS THERMOMETERS WITH OSCARS.
