Hi
I have a Exoterra thermostat stuck to the back of Bert's Vivarium.
I have been reading on the Webb that they are not very accurate :( :oops: .
Can anyone suggest a better one, But not too pricey :D


All suggestions will be gratefully received :D

Don't worry about the "accuracy" of the dial - as long as you are getting about 39~42C at the basking spot and mlow to mid 20's at the cool end it's working OK.Which particular model is it?

Thermostat or thermometer? I'm guessing you made an error in your first post when you said thermostat!! :oops:
Digital thermometers are very cheap through EBay and all are much more accurate than the analogue stuff you get which can have an error of up to 5 deg.
