What app do you use?

Would anyone mind sending me a copy of your spreadsheet please? I'm having trouble getting one going and could use an example/guide. Thanks.

Right now I only have a few notes but I want more detail and consistency.

Actually none. I am really busy right now so don't have lots of time on-hand! Plus before I got the test kit (which was a month ago) I didn't record numbers because, well, did not know them at the time! Maybe when I have free time I can try once in a while.

If I was using an app on my Phone I'd be waiting for the iOS 5 update, it's free and comes with a Reminder app that reminds you what to do.

I sent you a PM with a link to the Excel spreadsheet I base my logs around.

When I had my tank set up (gave my fish to an lfs cause I never cycled like every other newbie), I was keeping both an Excel sheet, as well as a materials list, and a word document for a journal. When I re-do my tank in a week or so, I'm just gonna use a computation notebook instead (has graph paper) for both my test results and my journal. It's nice to have the info to look back on; you can find out exactly what happened to cause your problems and prevent them from happening again in the future. Plus in school we have to keep an engineering log book so I'm used to it :P
