Maintenance Software?!?!

I tend to be good with water changes, and today is the first time i missed one in 4 months, the time my tank has been up. I know thats not a big problem since I can just do it tom. but I feel bad, and want to keep it from happening again. Is there software that can give me a pop up on Sun. night to brew some new water, and then monday tell me to change it? I had something like it I thought with my planted tank, but it wasnt free and was a trial. I am looking for something totally free.

Hola!

I'm still in the process of setting my tank but also had the same question about mamaintenanceeminders. I saw something at the LFS but didn't really convinced me.

I planning to use my PALM an program it with difedifferentetitive events (every day, week, month) that will sound an alarm every time something needs to be done.

I'll keep you posted.

Bye,
Norberto

If you have outlook you can use that as a planner that will give you reminders. However, I was perusing though petsmart and found a cool little timer type thing. Here's the item: http://www.petsmart.com/products/product_35907.shtml . It's only 10 bucks, and goes right by your tank. HTH

I bought reefcon pro, it is worth the 25.00 spent. All upgrades are free as well.
