Does anyone keep notes on their tank?  what do you use to track stuff? On my iPhone I use the Notes app.  I have different notes for different things.

You guys know that you can do notes and record testing values in Apex Fusion?  I've just started to use it.

 I may need some training on that. When I try to record my parameters does something weird with the numbers. For example I put 400 in calcium. It changes it to .98

I have been using an Android app called aquarium note, but will also admit I have not been diligent in testing/tracking.

Lazy,

Fusion does all the conversion for you.....you don't need the chart.  So if you are using Salifert, you just tell it how much titrate you used.

There is an option if you just want to enter the number.

Really like these apps. I'll have to check them out. Previously I just had a an excel spreadsheet for a tank that I managed for a summer camp.

I do all my notes in fusion. Itís interesting to compare graphs on your ph, calcium and alk or other combinations to see how they effect each other.
