How embarrassing... what a dummy I am!!!!!!!!!!!!
Those strip thermometers are a waste, so I grabbed what I thought was a good glass type. When I got it home, I noticed that it says "standing thermometer" and nothing else.... what in blue blazes is a "standing thermometer"????
It's simply a glass tube w/a red rubber bottom. I know what a wise-guy would say, but in terms of fish tanks, what do I do with it??? If I drop it into a tank, won't it just float away?
