    Aquarium Maintenance Software

    I was wondering if any of you are using a maintenance software to keep track of your parameters, live stock additions, water changes and various notes? If so wich programm do you use and more importantly do you like it?
    There is a lot of freeware out there and a lot of not so free <g> and if I can narrow it down and not have to download everything to test I would save a lot of time!
    Thanks in advance!

    I bought a software package last year called 'Marine Fish & MiniReed Interactive Support'. It's ok...just a fancy wrapper around a MS Access database really.
    I ended up just using a simple spreadsheet in excel.

    Carol,

    I use Aquanotes (with my Aquacontroller) to monitor the tank, but enter all my parameters in REEFCON LT.

    This is an excellent piece of software that allows you to log several tanks, has graphing capabilities, etc...
    It is FREE.

    The PRO version allows for X10 control, however seeing that I use an Aquacontroller, I have no need for this.

    Check it out here:

    If you're UNIX savy or you have a web host you can do stuff with, you're welcome to try out the software package I wrote:

    http://tanklogger.sf.net

    It is also free.

    My demo page is offline right now. It'll be back up this evening.

    i just write my test results on the back of the instruction sheet of the test kits.
    The rest is done by memory (based on the calander) at the end/beg of month i do my water change, change bulbs in June, clean when things look dirty.
