If, like me, you've ever accidentally killed your goldfish, you'll know how difficult aquarium management can be. One of the keys to keeping your fish happy and healthy is carefully monitoring the tank, controlling everything from when you clean it to the chemical composition of the water. Aquarium Lab is a highly-detailed program that will help you monitor all aspects of your aquarium, hopefully keeping your fish alive in the process.

To get started with Aquarium Lab you'll need to take few minutes to enter all the details of your tank, fish and routine. Once you've done this you'll be all set up to monitor progress, create to-do lists, calculate things like water composition, monitor your fish inventory and plan for future costs. The Aquarium Lab fields vary according to the subject area, but Calculations and Chemistry are especially complete and will let you keep a very tight rein on things.

Aquarium Lab's features are really quite extensive, with 20 different categories - ranging from water chemistry to pumps and plumbing - for you to modify and monitor. Once you fill in the details on each, you will be able to generate reports - individually or combined - so you can monitor your progress over time. You can also interact with other aquarium keepers on Aquarium Lab's wiki, forums and chat.

Between Aquarium Lab's extensive technical categories, easy-to-use functions and detailed report generation, it really seems to be the only aquarium management program you'll ever need. You can add as many aquariums and fish as you'd like, which makes it appropriate for a huge variety of aquarium owners. Admittedly the vast selection of features and tools might be overkill if you just have one goldfish, but, then again, if my history is anything to go by, some of us need all the help we can get.

Aquarium Lab is the only aquarium management program you'll ever need!
