    After the sad loss of Wet and his original site I decided to make a new free website dedicated purely to Aquarium Calculators.


    Currently this is mostly for dosing methods like The Estimative Index, PMDD, PPS-Pro, PMDD and an All-In-One but I plan to expand this to do more in the future. Most of it you'll have seen before but I plan to add a some whizzy extras going forward.....


    Let me know what you think or if you spot any [deliberate] mistakes etc


    Website - AquariumCalculators.com

    Thanks for looking!

    EI has a pretty wide range in practical usage, so the advice might reflect that a bit more.


    Graphing functionally over time and build up of nutrients etc, with water changes routines etc.....this will add a lot more value to the file.


    Then, new languages etc.


    Always a work in progress.

    Cheers guys, will definately add to this going forward. Basically do all the stuff I wasn't really able to for my other sites.

    It's a bit of a placeholder for sure - Keen to set up a FAQ etc and flesh it all out. Looking around on the likes of FB and Reddit it's like stepping back 10 years from places like here, UKAPs etc so there's still work to be done.

    Yeah, I saw that! I started this after I heard about Wet and saw the hosting had gone. It's great that his work is being updated!!

    Yep, plenty, but often times, a new person will add new input.... and that makes it easier for everyone, more heads thinking about the same issues is better than just one person alone.


    Pick away at it every so often, and think about what might be the easiest thing for the average newbie.


    EI was based on that idea really, not much else.


    Make it easy and simple, which dosing is really.........


    But many want to make it very complicated even still.


    I hardly give much fert advice these days, more scaping and general management.


    Fert ppm questions? I send them to the calculators.

    Nice site. A few bugs. I tried the EI calc and the recipes don't change according to the tank size as did Wet's. Will this be updated where you can specify how big of a dose and the calc will say how many grams of ferts to add?

    That's not a bug, it's a feature! lol


    No, we did it that way to keep the first version simple (avoiding saturation problems) but we'll be changing it as soon as we can.

    TNC Trace has different percentages for all of the elements.

    Looks great on IOS.


    Yikes!!! Huge difference in recipes. The New Rotala Butterfly says I need way more KNO3 for the 12 Long than necessary.
