Does anyone know any thermometers that are super durable. I don't want a strip and digital are expensive and I have one by lifeguard that went haywire. I want a durable glass/plastic. My delima is my giganic goldfish have broke mine and once I broke one. I want one that doesn't break easily, one that will not break unless I get a hammer!

Instead of getting one that sticks to the glass via a suction cup, get one that doesn't float. These will stand upright on the bottom and your goldfish shouldn't be able to slam it against the glass and break it.

You could always get an inexpensive one and stick it in the filter, if you have a HOB one.

These are unreliable. They will measure out the room temp most likely.

Plus the stickers are impossible to take off.

Hmm, Coralife Digital Thermometers are $9.99. You'll probably find them in the saltwater section of your LFS.
