This has probably been discussed in depth, but I'd like current opinions on what type of thermometer people trust the most? Glass? Strip? Digital?
And has anyone found any particular ones consistent and reliable??

I use a probe with my apex. I also use a digital one with a metal end like you would use if you cook meat

I use the cheap digital ones but check every week with an expensive meat thermometer and if its within range I keep using it, if it's a long way off I chuck it away.
They are cheap and easy to move between tanks so can be used to compare between each other. I also triple check with a glass one. You do end up collecting these things over the years.

I use this one from Thermoworks. It is about $20 and is consistent with what my Ranco controller says. Also has an alarm feature.

I also use one of these (~$30) to second-check the digital thermometer above and also check my salt water mix. This is also from Thermoworks. Yes, I like the Thermoworks products. High quality stuff.

Do you think a xenia refugium is an effective method of water filtration?
