I just use the standard stick-on digital ones. Seems pretty accurate to me.

Same here, just wanted to see what others are using and trust.

Regular glass thermometers are still what I like the most.

I say either as long as its glass but no matter the size of the tank I run two heaters and a glass thermometer on each end to make sure it's even temperature

Interesting. I just got a 75gallon today and have an extra Top Fin 150 watt heater. I was thinking of adding it to my new tank on the other side. I wonder how many people do this and if it's really needed. It makes sense though... I mean the side that has the heater on it I would think would be warmer right?

If you have adequate water flow I would think the temp would be even (if not, very close) throughout the tank.
