cheap thermometers

This may sound silly, I don't know. I thought I should let everyone know something that happened with Charlie's thermometer that was bought from wal-mart. It was a cheap glass one with the tiny metal balls in the bottom. I was making my rounds and checking on my fish like I do and when I got to charlie's tank I noticed something weird with his thermometer. It was full of water. First thing that panicked me was the mercury leaking into his water, then I though about the metal balls... I freaked out and took it out of the tank in a matter of seconds after these thoughts. I checked it and to my eyes I couldn't see a single crack. Charlie was fine but I went ahead and did a total water change doused everything with hot water. Just wanted to tell everyone to keep an eye out if you have those types of thermometers.

Thanks for the warning. The only problem I've ever had with a thermometer was when I dropped one.

This one wasn't dropped or anything. It was weird. I couldn't even find a crack anywhere.
