I test and adjust every other day. I also use an app called Aqua Planner. It allows you to track equipment, livestock, enter test results (and trend them) and add notes. You can also set up alerts (water changes, light change out, etc).

Yes, you can graph the various test results at different intervals, up to a year.

Did a 60% partial water change this morning. I will test again later today to see if my calcium and alkalinity has been reduced to safer levels.
