New Hygro Thermo worth looking at.

Post by DaJimmer » Tue Oct 17, 2017 3:42 pm

New hygro thermo. It was like 12 bucks on Amazon with some of the best reviews out of any of the products. I calibrated it and it seems to be the most accurate thing I've owned so far. Lots of people have those black and gray bricks from AcuRite from Walmart you can take the brick out of your tank and put in these probes. I'm super stoked. :banana:

Ensure the probe stays out of crab way. They can pinch through them, leading to inaccurate results. Covering the wire with a piece of airline tubing would be wise.

Incidentally I had this one. It got out of whack after a month or so. Also, while I secured the probes, the crabs got them loose & pinched the wires, which were very fine, and that was that.

Can't recommend for crabs myself.

I liked it for my gecko though. In lower humidity it never seems to get nutty.
