That's only optional. If you feel the need of it, then you go on buying it.:thumbsup:
Internal mercury thermometers are your best bets for accurate measurement, not external ones which are easily influenced by room temps. Place your thermometer away from the heater.

I did see Cartimar's selection as vast but as I didn't stay too long there during my vacation, I can't really say much about their selection but they should be stocking thermometers. Every lfs should have thermometers.

Hydrometer is required as this helps you measure the salinity.
