FAQ and Feedback

AquaticLog FAQ

The intention for this post is to help answer some of the questions you may have about AquaticLog. It will be continuously updated and will be pinned to the top. Feel free to leave your feedback in the comments below.

History
My name is Dmitry Tumanov and I had started AquaticLog as a website to help me get organized with my foray into reef aquariums in November 2012. Since then I had continued working on every year and have made over 740 updates to the website.

First versions of native mobile apps were written in 2014 and now mobile app is the predominant way that users access the service.

In early 2018 I’ve built industry first Artificial Intelligence recommender system that to this day helps making suggestion to aquarists on optimal parameters for their aquariums.

In late 2018 AquaticLog has hit 1,000,000 measurements mark, you can see real-time number of measurements taken so far at the bottom of every web page.

While I have my main job, both programming and reefing are my passions and I continue to work on native iPhone app, native Android app and website whenever I can. When you pay for the app you directly support this development, thank you.

You can also see all of my aquariums on YouTube channel.

Cloud Sync
AquaticLog app allows seamless syncing between iPhone, Android and web. Should you switch phones or even mobile platforms, all your data is safe. You can also make your data private or share with other aquarists to get advice or bragging rights.

Sponsors
Big thank you to long-term supporters of AquaticLog: EcoTech, AquaIllumination, NYOS, PolypLab and many others. You have helped a lot in expanding this service.

Free
As of November 2019, on its 7th birthday the app was made free to all of you. Enjoy.

If you feel that I'm doing a great job and want to say an extra thank you, please consider sending a donation.

Import your parameters
If you would like to import your parameters, you can easily do so by logging to the website, going to your parameters page and clicking on a single existing parameter. You will then see an "Import" button, clicking on it will take you to a page where you can upload a Comma-Separated file (CSV) and instructions on how to do so.

larrynuke ‐ I want to import external parameters and there is no import button. Where is it?
dtum@larrynuke If you would like to import your parameters, you can easily do so by logging to the website, going to your parameters page and clicking on a single existing parameter.

vinnyo ‐ How do I delete photos??
dtum@vinnyo excellent question - there's a bug in the current app version for iPhone - the delete button is underneath the photo on the right side, it will work but you can't see it due to the Dark Mode changes. The fix is already in and will be released soon.
vinnyo@dtum awesome, thank you so much.
paulwilly ‐ Could do with a way to remove warning saying to high I want my Phosphorus above 10 but flashing saying to high
dtum@paulwilly yes Paul, very easy - go to the Charts view for that particular measurement, in your case Phosphate, and you will see the "i" icon, you can click on that and it will allow you to overwrite the higher/lower thresholds. Same functionality is also available on the website.
