Having a good fish tank thermometer is very important. It could be the difference between life and death for your fish!
A couple of years ago, when I didn’t have a fish tank thermometer, I remember walking past my fish tank and wondering why they were all swimming so slowly. In passing, I thought, ‘why aren’t my fish swimming much?’ But I didn’t investigate any further.
It wasn’t until the next day when one of my favorite fish, Little Moe with the Gimpy Fin, was floating upside down that I took a closer look. I found out the heater in my tank had come unplugged! Little Moe, who had a birth deformity leaving him with a crippled tail, and who was a weak, poorly fish, was first to go. He succumbed to the cold.
This could have been prevented if I had a fish tank thermometer. It would have immediately caught my eye that the water temperature had dropped dramatically, and Little Moe would still be with us.

I’ve selected three of the best thermometers for you to consider. These are all cheap fish tank thermometers, but they don’t need to be expensive to do the job! It is good to double check them from time to time to make sure they are working correctly, or in the case of a digital thermometer, to make sure the battery isn’t flat.
