I keep a Diary of just about everything on my Aquarium. Including purchases, Dry and Live Goods, my Dosing and Feeding Times, except for the Auto Feeding. Reminders for Scheduling Maintenanc. I used to keep a written Diary, but it was a bit cumbersome, and hard to go back and research. Now I use the CalenGoo App. the search engine is excellent, and it easily updates from device to device. IE iPhone to iPad to a Microsoft computer and back. If I want to see when I got my Lime Green Psammocora, and what progress it has made I can enter Psammocora and the list pops up. Like the time it got accidentally fragged. When setting CalenGoo up set up a Google Account first on a Computer then get the App. I would look at the set up procedures on your hand held device, while installing on your computer. I goofed on the original set up and lost a couple weeks, but haven’t lost a single entry or Calendar since. Yes, you can set up multiple color coded calendar. Sample of the search engine.

I use a spreadsheet with a sheet tracking testing parameters, dosing, evaporation rate, and water changes, a separate tab for equipment added, and another tab for livestock tracking including date added and the name of the vendor. I dump the data on water parameters to several charts for visuals on stability and/or swings.

Similar to what @kittenbritches does. I've got a spreadsheet for all my water params and dosing changes. Another tab for livestock additions and another for a 'journal' of sorts that has notes for events (like what day I noticed cyano first appear.)

Definitely, my mom for Christmas once got me a 365 days of reefing log book that has everything that you could log and record.. it's freaking great. I've been buying them every year since. Journal included.
