I would rather test the water than depend on that. I know the strip thermometers don't own that well either.

The darn thing always did break off. I ended up letting them float ;)

Eh, the sensor in the middle is the same material that SeaChem uses in their MultiTest kit, so I trust it. My family has been relying on SeaChem for years for aquarium products. Obviously, if you get a spike or dip in PH in a regular test, you will probably want to formally test for ammonia, too. It also causes zero panic due to false positives since it only tests for NH3 and not other types of ammonium. Maybe not the best for a large aquarium community, but does its job for my little tank.

My strip thermometer has been fairly accurate when cross-checked with a glass one. If I weren't a broke college student, I would definitely invest in top-of-the-line products for my little guy. But for now, I think it sure beats the plastic cup he came in.

I did the same with mine, and yet they seem to thrive planted at one of the fish stores back home. Oh well :)

Sigmund

Here is my 2.5 gal tank. Inside is my CT betta. His name is Sigmund. I haven't decided on a middle name yet. I've had him for about 9 months. He is very happy. I do 20% water changes every two weeks. He has a little bridge and two plants (Amazon sword and a Windelov java fern). There is also a heater in the back. I keep his temp from 76-84.
