Thermometer not sticking to tank

Hello! My thermometer has not been sticking to the side of my tank. This problem recently developed. Itís attached by a suction cup. Should I just give up and buy a new one?

If you are talking about those $3 Amazon ones, then yes, either buy a new one or a better one. It will fall off again, float around and eventually break and have broken glass all over your aquarium. I know from personal experience

Yes.

Digital with a probe is best if you don't want to deal with the same thing again.

My guess is that your fish may be knocking it away from glass, my Mbuna cichlids are notorious for knocking mine away.
