Can anyone recommend a digital thermometer/hydrometer?

This is where you discuss the conditions of your crabitat -- temperature, humidity, substrate, decorating, etc.

Ok so I need a new digital thermometer/hydrometer for my tank as mine fell in their water dish. Can anyone recommend one that is easy to use, works well, and less then $15?

I forget the price, but Acurite works well

This is what I use. You can buy an Acurite guage from Amazon, digital, runs on batteries, tells you temp and humidity currently as well as low and high for last 24 hours: https://smile.amazon.com/AcuRite-00325- ... 184&sr=8-2

Acurites seem to be most crabbers go to gauge. We can find the one GotButterflies posted at WalMart for about the same price as Amazon. Lowe's also sells a similar, but square shaped Acurite for a dollar or two more.

With any new gauge be sure to calibrate to be sure it is correct. There is a how to in our care guide area.
