Which would u go off of??

So im currently setting up my Betta Violet's new 10 gallon tank and i turned the heater on about 5 hours ago. It doesnt have where u can set it to a specific temp. just raise it or lower it. i have a temp. strip on the side of the tank that reads 82-84 degrees but then i also have a metal temp. gauge for meat (never been used on meat) that reads 80 degrees. Which do u think is more accurate? Also do u think i should get a glass temp. gauge that is always in the tank, or is what im using ok.

I would pick up a floating aquarium thermometer. They're only a couple of bucks.

i agree with leeniex, she knows her stuff. and i have 2 thermometers, with suction cups that go inside the tank, they seem accurate, you should by 1 of them !good luck...!http://www.petco.com/product/102939/...:referralID=NA

I've found the outside strips to usually always be off a couple degree's. Glass or digital is more accurate.

Ones that attach to the glass read both inside and outside temps. I keep my desk lamp close to Laki's tank and sometimes the bulb modd's the temperature strip :/ But the glass bobbing ones are okay but be very careful with them!!! Are they stil made with mercury?? I seen some fish perish to them.
