"Nice notebook, just add wisdom"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Fish fanciers who are inclined toward micromanagement (or maybe just good management ;-) will probably want to at least look at this. What I was hoping for was some way to enter my particular setup (seven Buenos Aires tetras, nine neon tetras, four green corys, two Julii corys, 20 gallons, ph 8, bubbler seachest, Jack Rackham skull, etc etc) and get back recommendations like "Fifty inches of fish in 20 gallons, are you insane!?? Your water will be permanently green in four months!" But no. So ok, 3 stars for what's there, half a star for promise, round up for effort.

"This is worrisome"

March 29, 2005  |  By wgscott

 |  Version: Maquarium 2.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Well I downloaded this just to see what it was like. I've kept marine fish for abouot 9 years and am a chemist, so I believe I am in a reasonable position to judge this.

I decided to get the profile for "Purple Tang," which is a nice marine reef aquarium fish but has a few requirements that a novice should know about in order to take care of it properly.

The profile indicated the fish was a live-bearer, and that it prefered temperatures of 72-78F and salinity of 1.023 g/ml. Although the fish is reef-safe, (won't eat your corals), that was not specified. The fish is from the red sea and prefers temperatures of 82-84F and a salinity in excess of 1.025 g/ml. It lays eggs.

This is not very impressive.

The rest of the application, from what I can tell, is essentially a notebook. Any spreadsheet program will be just as useful and far more flexible.

I spend hours with my computers, one of which sits 12" away from my reef aquarium. I would still find this too inconvenient to use, even if it was free.
