  1. Do you trust your thermometer? I don't! I suspected something was off when I setup my quarantine tank (5 gal.) with a new heater and a floating thermometer and nothing was even close to lining up temp. wise. I set the heater for 78 degrees and the thermometer registered 84 degrees! What the heck! The heater manufacturer claims an accuracy of +- 2deg. so I had 3 old glass floaters left in a box from back in the day and I dropped them in the tank too. So now I was getting readings from 70-84 across 4 different floaters! Nothing was matching up! I had purchased one of those fancy stick on black digital thingies (I hate those things, you gotta use a flashlight to see them) and stuck that on too. That one actually agreed with the heater! Go figure! I've ordered a new floater here from the Co-op and hope it's a good one. So I guess the point here is do you trust your thermometer? How do you verify the temp? It goes without saying how important this is. Any suggestions or recommendations? Temp gun? I'm just getting back into the hobby and I don't want to start out by cooking anything. Thanks for any help.
