Balling Method (italian)

 
 

 
aquaCalc is a very simple app for calculating some useful values for your aquarium managing. Its main functions are a Digital Carbon Dioxide Table, a calculator using Balling Method for calcium and magnesium reintegration and finally a simple calculator for the electrical consuptions of your aquarium with its accessories connected. This application is compliant with the regional settings of your device in the way of currency and measurement system display.

Co2 Digital Table

USE

Itís the first voice of the menu and itís very easy to use: it is sufficent to input Ph and Kh values of your tank via sliders. The result is given real time in the proper cell below and expressed in Carbon Dioxide in parts per milion. Depending on the result the background color of cell will change:

  •              Red is insufficent Co2, usually below 14 ppm;
  •      Green is the right  amount for correct plant growing;
  •      Yellow is too much Co2 for your environement. Too much Carbon Dioxide can can be dangerous for your fishes.

These colors are the used stardards in Co2 tables. Ph has been limited to 8.5 while Kh is limited to 13 °dkH.

Some other features like levels of oxigen and bubbles per minute are calculated. It will be sufficent to provide other data of your tank like the temperature (third slider) and the capacity in liters/gallons.

SHARING

As other parts of aquaCalc, you can share the results via major social networks and/or copy it for further uses. To choose sharing method click on the top right bar action button. 

Calcium and Magnesium Reintegration with Balling Method

USE

Simply fill in the five parameters for calculation: tank capacity, actual level of calcium, your optimal calcium level and so on with magnesium. Once filled in datas from your aquarium press the bottom blue calculate button to access results. Those are splitted in to two different views respectively for magnesium and calcium. Various sodium preparation quatities are splitted in those two views. We reccomend to increase your knoledge of the Balling Method on the net. There are tons of resources and guides on the argument that may enrich your experience with aquaCalc.

SHARING 

Like other parts of this app, you can share calculation results with major social network, or copy them into clipboard.

TWITTER ISSUE

Unfortunately the amount of data in the result text is further more over twitter 140 characters limitation. So itís not possible to use it unless you first copy data into clipboard then reopen share, select twitter menu and paste it into twitter window. Then you can edit and shorten the text. For this reason we decided to keep twitter sharing in this menu. Editing all this stuff itís an hard work anyway imho.

Aquarium electrical consumptions

USE

This function gives the user the capability of calculate on a daily, monthly and annual electrity consumption and its relative costs. On first use the user is asked to add an electrical asset of his aquarium. This can be via the add top left bar button. On this view the user is asked add a name for an electrical accessory, its watt power and the time it is powered on. There is a list of preloaded accessories names: itís accessible from the button on the left of the first row. From this menu the user can select a preloaded accessory name, or he can add one or more personal accessory name, or delete pre existing ones. User can edit a previous inserted asset too, simply by clicking on it in main aqua consuption menu.

Once user has enlisted all his aquarium accessories, itís now adviced to fill in the kilowatt medium price value. Itís the last cell of the list. Then press the  red bottom calculate button. A panel with the total values of Kw wasted and money cost in daily, monthly and annually basis.

NOTE

To reset to default list of pre existing accessories, simply reinstall the app.

NOTE

Usually Heaters need an average usage time calculation. User is left free to specify usage time in this case too.
