Help! I don't know how to read my tank thermometer!

It is a stick-on, petco brand thermometer. The 82 square is green so does that mean its 82 in the tank?

Yes, that is what its supposed to mean. I would suggest though to get an in tank thermometer which would be sitting in the water & be more accurate. Petco/Petsmart have them for $2-$3.

Very good advice from Shellie, as usual.

If you have a fever thermometer available, you can check your floating thermometer against it for accuracy.

+1 to Shellie.

Glass thermometers are a lot more reliable than the sticky ones, I've found.
