Is this website accurate??

I came across this website that shows how stocked your tank is, you tell them your tank specs and what critters are in it and they tell you what % your at in terms of how fully stocked it is...
AqAdvisor - Intelligent Freshwater Tropical Fish Aquarium Stocking Calculator and Aquarium Tank/Filter Advisor
I just wanted to know if you guys have any idea of how accurate the site is...

Sorry if this is the wrong place for this thread, but i couldn't find anywhere else to put it...

It's a good guideline. It's not always dependable though.

The most accurate way to stock a tank is to stick to fish that fit in the tank and get along, even when full grown. Their total size should be comfortable in that size tank (for example: no oscars in a 55, the tank is too narrow for them) and you do enough water changes to keep the nitrate concentration under 20ppm before a water change. If you do this you will rarely have any compatibility problems.

Not very IMO... too many factors involved. Not to mention, it doesn't know everything about every fish. I wouldn't even bother with it. You can just post stocking help threads here and plenty of members will chime in with their suggestions
