how accurate is AqAdvisor?
The name of the thread says it all. I've heard people talking about them so i checked the website out today. According to them, i'm overstocking my planted tank. But i have not had problem with my fish for a very very long time. I've also noticed that the parameters it considers are: tank size, dimensions, filtration capability. All experienced hobbyists know that these are NOT the only parameters that are needed for a well balanced tank. For instance, it doesn't take decoration into consideration (whether it's lightly planted/heavily planted). Lighting can be an issue for sensitive fish. Substrate choices are another factor. I'm not saying they give bad advices, just simply that everyone should take the recommendations with a grain of salt, even those from the most experienced hobbyists, as each tank is unique in itself and the personality of each fish is anyone's guess
Anyone can chime in on this topic?
