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.

Thanks

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.... ??

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!

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.
