Setting up my first apex and I am making a probe holder out of acrylic. I was wondering how deep the probes should be into the water. I haven't seen any info on this.

Thx

I normally submerge them up the the edge of the plastic cover so that all of the probe minus the upper inch or two is submerged.

The temp probe is the only one that can be permanently submerged. The others are "water resistant" but shouldn't be submerged all the time. Basically if they get submerged for water change / feed cycle but shouldn't be completely submerged 24.7.
