Aquarix 4 - the aquariumsoftware
There are two versions of Aquarix 4:
- FULL version comes with 1240 photos and databases
- LIGHT version has no databases or images.
With Aquarix 4 you are able to create a neat data collection of every aquarium
Aquarix is an easy to use to use software for managing aquarium data.
It collects all critical data of your tanks, fish, plants, measurements, creates
statistics, diaries, data tables and many other useful information. It helps
you keep track of maintenance tasks for your tanks and reminds you when lights
have to be changed due to expired lifetime. Its many features enable you to
keep your animals as healthy as possible, for example by leading you to the
cause of diseases, showing you when to change water and enabling you to see
what trend the water measurements follow.
Every tank managed by Aquarix 4 contains sections for:
- Aquarium data
like size, volume, minimum and maximum water values and schedule settings
as well as unlimited photos of the tank to see how it evolved in time.
- Filters, pumps,
heaters, lights and other electrical equipment. Change and care intervals
for every single appliance can be added, as well as unique schedule chaining.
- Data of fish,
plants and inverts, along with as many photos as you like for every species.
Species data can be imported from the included databases and imported via
special import files in case a friend entered a new species.
- Data of stock
items, multiple stock records per species to distinguish groups is quite unique
in Aquariumsoftware. Stock items can be copied, moved to other tanks (of course
with complete documentation, where the go, from where they came), imported
and exported. You may also move single specimens from a stock list.
- Events for cleaning
and care. The user can define unlimited event templates with many options.
With these events you can track EVERYTHING in the tanks. Aquarix itself creates
events in case of death, selling, moving, adding or removing items to document
these actions. You can even see where fish went to or where they came from.
data. Up to 99 different measurements are possible per entry, no limit for
entries. Aquarix calculates a graphical statistic from this data and shows
also the events in the same timeline as an icon (before you ask: icons can
be added..) to show events and water values in relation (again: A unique feature)
- Income and expenses.
A complete system with accounts (yes, you can edit and add accounts) lets
you track what a tank costs. Of course aquarix calculates the water and power
usage by itself: Analysis tools show you these costs along with the income
and expenses for a single or for all tanks, even in specific time periods
or usage of every single appliance in the tank. As I said, this software is
unique, you will not find this feature somewhere else.
4 uses this data, which is entered quite easy, to calculate:
- Care schedules
for all appliances and water changes. The schedule manager can also be used
to add your own schedules, also for specific tanks. Aquarix calculates schedules
for waterchange, filtercleaning, pump maintenance and light-changes automatically
if wanted. You can change intervals for every single appliance.
- The age of animals:
Aquarix calculates the current age, which is unique and very interesting to
statistics, it shows you all values in a timeline, zooming included. All events
are shown in the same timeline, showing you all data graphically. Look for
the screenshots below. CO2-Chart is calculated from pH and KH values.
- Cost analysis
showing the water usage and the power consumption of a single tank or for
- A data table
showing all data of the tank in table form. This also allows to export all
data to excel, word, html, pdf etc.

print-reports with tank data, stock lists, species data or events. Even a
diary printing function is included. Printing as PDF-File is also possible.
