Have read the theory you have submitted and without doubt have spent considerable time compiling.I believe it will indeed be helpful to new aquarists.
For those like myself, It is as you have noted.,,,"Particularly,study tends to reveal that all subjects contain a certain degree of subjectivity." It is as it should be.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Hello Everyone,

Just a little question: How many of you guys would call yourselves fishkeeping idealists and how many would call yourselves pragmatists?

While being a good idea intended, after reading your website......(never went to the spreadsheet) i think your info is going to be overbearing and too complex for the new aquarium owner.......Thus leading to more questions and posts on this or another forum......(not a bad thing)...........I have read alot of different info on the web and i find conflicting info all the time, one place says this will work while another says to do the opposite............I think your on the right track, but i think you need an easier approach to your spreadsheet......(i did just check it out) your info and way of using the spreadsheet is gonna confuse more people from the than help...I think their are alot of variables that need to be considered on a tank to tank basis for one piece of info cannot ever cover all the things going on with compatibility........Thats just my opinion

Fishin Pole,

I grant that my website and spreadsheet are a bit complex, but it is a complex subject. Nonetheless, there is always room for improvement. If you have any suggestions about how to make the spreadsheet or website more user-friendly, then I would love to hear them.

Thanks,
MOA

For new hobbyist's , Complexity,,, whether real ,or self inflicted,, is often a recipe for failure. I do not consider myself to be an idealist ,but rather a realist. Reality suggest's that keeping things simple for all hobbyist's should be the ideal goal.

Hello,

I made a spreadsheet that can be used to help new fish breeders. It can be accessed via the first two links of my signature.

Added some new links to the website that referrence other tools. Some of the new tools include a species index, a guide to how many structures the tank should have, a spreadsheet that calculates the rate of change for drip-tube acclimation, etc.
