That's what I figured about the heater. :) And just got back from the pet store and bought another thermometer. Currently have all 3 together and I have already been able to pick out the broken one. It is indeed my old one as it still has not moved and the new one is already almost at the same.. :D

Oh yes and a bit off the thermometer topic but will an algae pad work to baffle the filter?

Depending on what kind of filter, it might. What kind of filter does that tank have?

I'd stuff it full of extra sponge (or Poly-fil), or make a water bottle baffle. The water bottle thing works well, and you wouldn't see it on this tank, since the HOB is hidden ... but the sponge would give extra space for BB to grow.

As far as algae pads, I think they're safe, but I'd question whether they'd fall apart after long, continuous exposure to running water like that.

Ok and thanks again for all your wonderful advice. The Algae pad was as close as I could get for a sponge at my local pet store (small town). Though I have replacement sponges coming for this filter so may just wait and use one of those.

Also raising the water level close to the filter output helps slow down current
