I have a suction-cup glass thermometer in my 15g and it works well. I recommend immersed-type thermometers, sicne they are generally more reliable. I agree with it being a bit hard with overly active and large fish. It isn't a problem in mine, though, since all I have in there are a betta and 2 small plecos.

Your fish love watching you as much as you love watching them. So please practice responsible fishkeeping.

After reading this thread, I think I should go buy a submersible one, but after iamntbatman's story, I don't know what I should do.

Which of these would be ideal?
Zoo Med digital thermometer (I like this style, I like the simple readout types. Are they reliable?)
Lifeguard little time or temp dig clock/thermometer (This one too)
Top Fin floating glass thermometer (This one seems simple, it can be suctioned inside)
Given that you have a small tank you shouldn't be keeping any fish that will give a thermometer trouble. The Top Fin one will likely be fine.
