What do you use to track your tank???

I am pretty new to this and am trying to keep a log of what is going on in my tank.
This is what I am using right now.
I understand that there is software avalable but I am not sure it is worth the money.

Please let me know your opinions.

I just write in a small notebook. I've been thinking of creating something in the computer.

It did before - it showed a spreadsheet with places to enter water chemistry results. I just tried it again and it's only got "welcome to google docs" on it now.... ??

I made up an excel spreadsheet. i wouldn't spend the money on any type of software but whatever works for you....
welcome to the forum.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

As much as I love Excel it would require me to go back to my laptop to enter the info. Half the time I forget, lol. So instead I keep little notepads in the cabinets under each tank and keep my notes scribbled there. After trying to keep it tracked on a spreadsheet I find this way I don't miss notating something important. I suppose I could enter the details on a weekly basis from the note pads. That would be an idea. Then instead of running around from note pad to note pad I could see it all in one place. Duh.

Welcome to TFK and for prompting me to come up with a solution to tracking my tanks details!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Note book

Ihave tried to keep records on my pc, an have found the a notebook works better. Why write the info twice. My notebook goes back to Feb 231008, on a planted 75 gallon. I keep track of everything that is done to the tank, water changes, plant feedings , PH, ammonia, etc. ya get the idea. I would write it all down, an then loose it, but thats me. Good luck, info keeping is a great idea.
