I've been using these for years. There are several models that have probes 
that are entirely plastic-coated and can be submerged unmodified. I usually 
strap the probe to the filter intake   a few inches below the waterline.

I have one on my big tank that even records minimum and maximum 
temperatures, which comes in handy occasionally.
