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.
