I am looking for a few recommendations for good thermometer. A water one and one for the basking spot. I have a stick on the side of the outside of the aquarium one now for the water. Not sure jow reliable it is. If you have any links that would be great. Thank you for any help.

I like to recommend having two types... a cheap stick-on type that goes on the outside of the glass and a small infrared one. The cheap on is a reliable backup for measuring water temperatures and you have that covered. An infrared one is contactless (you point it to the thing you want to measure).

I have a small one, similar to this: http://www.petco.com/shop/en/petcostore ... hermometer

I routinely see others, with a handle that are around $12.

Edit: Here's one (though I like smaller ones): http://slickdeals.net/f/9101415-nubee-t ... me-or-fsss
