An aquarium thermometer is a device that measures the temperature of the water. To help you find the best aquarium thermometer for your needs, we’ve outlined some common types below.
We always recommend you buy an aquarium thermometer to monitor the temperature of your aquarium. Whether you keep fish or have a planted aquarium, it is always best practice to keep an eye on your water temperature. They are also useful to help identify if your aquarium heater is working correctly or malfunctioning.
Fish or aquatic plants have an optimal range in which they’ll thrive. Having a thermometer is an important tool to help you maintain a stable water temperature.
Where you place your aquarium thermometer is up to you. It’s a personal preference but will also depend on your tank setup. Some people like to place them at the front, some people prefer their fish tank thermometers on the side of their tanks. Wherever you place it, make sure it’s somewhere that makes it easy for you to monitor the temperature of your water.
In our experience, stick-on thermometers are reasonably accurate. If you are looking for an aquarium thermometer with the best accuracy though, we recommend getting a digital electronic thermometer with a probe like the Aqua One ST3 Electronic Thermometer.
