I'm also looking into software made for aquarium maintenance, instead of spreadsheet. I've found a few out there but am still looking them over.

By software, what features are you looking for? Reminders? Calculations?

If you go to my build thread, you'll see the four (LOL four not one) that I've narrowed it down to.

I'm basically looking at a "full blown" application, not just to keep track of parameters but other stuff like charts, graphs, costs, info on stock, reminders, multiple tanks. You know just your "basic full blown" lol

Anyway, its also useful to put down dates of when you got new fish, or decorations, etc. And any unusual behavior. Yay logbooks!

Does anyone have a copy of a spreadsheet chart that I can use to keep track of my SW and FW levels?

Oh yes! I have 5 full notebooks so far and it's only been 5-6 months since I started keeping fish! My 14 year old writes stories about the fish. Some really good ones

I tape my reciepts in the books too...and note everything that happens from adding new fish, to the process I've taken doing something such as starting a new tank. I log this stuff as a reference to look at back if need be.

I also have an excellent notebook that I drew sketches of my tank plan ideas, logged plants I liked and what their needs are as well as a notebook deidicated to fish species, their needs and habits such as eating style and prefered location in the tank.

Yeah sure the internet has it all but I just enjoy creating my own research books It's tons of fun!!!
