thermometer?

I have the digital sticker thermometers on my reef tank. Just wondering how accurate these are opposed to a glass in tank one which I also have. It reads about a degree or two warmer.

As you've noticed, they aren't nearly as accurate as something immersed in the actual water.

I'd leave it on. It's a quick visual reference as you walk by in case something goes drastically wrong with your heater or chiller.

And also depending on your tank size, if you have a thermometer on each end the water temp could be slightly different. Especially if your heater is on one end of the tank.
