kla posted New Feature: Aquarium Logs on kla
2012-12-28 13:51:59 -0800

We recently added a new feature to the site to help you track your tank's parameters. You'll be able to record and track all of your parameters and view how they've changed over time in a nice graph. The system will visually alert you when any of your parameters fall outside of the ranges that have been defined for each. For example, if your Calcium is too low it will be displayed in red and you'll see it outside of the safe blue area on the graph. Finally, you'll be able to add "events" (basically notes) to keep track of maintenance performed, equipment changes, dosing or really anything that you don't want to spam your main tank profile page with.

To get started just go to your tank's page and click on the link near the top right.

The first thing you'll want to do is click the button in the top right. Here you'll select the parameters that you want to track. We've set some sensible defaults for the low, target and high values but you may want to change them to something more to your liking.

To start logging parameters click the button. Once you've logged a few parameters they will start showing up on the graph at the top.

Check out our kla/55-reef-tank for a complete example of the logging system.

We've still got more features planned such as adding reminders to do tasks like water changes, changing bulbs, ... so keep checking back and let us know if you have any feedback, questions and/or requests at feedback@aquarist.me.
