Yes we need your help! We've already started it but we're already looking ahead so help us out!
If the app could replicate functionality and features of tracking apps (e.g., Aquarimate), those of us who use multiple apps could bundle to one app. Tracking maintenance (past, current, and future), parameters, future plans, etc., would be really convenient.

The app, while tracking the above, could contain links in keywords which opened forum posts for those specific subjects - sort of a "help file" kind of system.

Throw reef calculators in there for all of the commonly used additives and supplements; you'd have a one-stop shop for reef.

Side note, if you need a software tester, let me know. I work in IT development project management now, but I moved up the ranks as a software tester.

All in all, very exciting.

I want to be able to stick my phone in the water while the app is running and it does all of my testing. ;-) OK, that might be a bit much to ask for out of the gate so things like logging parameters, adding video, more emojis, calculators, albums. These are all great. :)

Karen - You are really onto something here - your smartphone reading parameters, par levels, and other vitals!

Something to replace FB's groups.
This is what goes on in my local reefer groups:
People post corals/fish for sale or trade, but you have to word everything vaguely so that FB doesnt ban the group for selling live animals.
People/vendors participate in "waffles" to win corals.
People/vendors post auctions on corals.
Local vendors/LFS post videos of their current stock.

I would like to get the calculators for the big three so it would be easy to put 2 values in and calculate the third thinking magnesium here,

I would like a species compatability chart to be accessible for fish inverts and corals so we have less can I put this with that questions and save lives of fish corals and inverts,

I would also second or tenth the suggestion of a reefers near me to assist with bulk buying between fellow hobbyists and best lfs near me rating on a map type of view so you can see if the lfs specialise in corals fish or everything inbetween by members ratings of said stores

Am I dreaming too big for ya all :grimacing-face: ?

Since the first thing asked when post any kind of question about issues is what are your parameters, or would be awesome if the app not only tracked parameters but had a 1 touch parameter post button or even an interactive look at current parameters if poster allowed it. Maybe you can work with apex to have an option to pull data from their api to get logged parameters stored there, especially from trident.

Livestock lookup to get base information about the animals kept would be nice so when someone starts typing about a particular animal, it will give option to auto fill the name from the dictionary of animals and link to that so all post readers can click and get info about the animal posted about. Maybe partner with live aquaria to pull their data via api.

Like surf R2R, track and log parameters, set reminders and anything else you can dream!
Not sure how this would work - but it would be nice if it could also track parameters from apex fusion. (I'm not sure Neputune would favor this) - But - I can easily use R2R on my phone through the web - I cant really think of anything else. Good luck !!

some kind of template where we could have option to add in certain things like parameters, lights used/ how long etc so first few posts aren't what are your parameters, what lights you use and the likes back and forward for first few posts/ first page etc.

maybe something like when someone starts a thread and enters in certain key words like algae pests/ black bugs/ ich, it comes on screen and gives option to read a thread that gives the information from someone who knows what they talking about on how to diagnose/ treat/ follow up etc so that person doesn't need to make the thread as maybe all the info they need know in this thread that " pops up" or option to " redirect them " to a thread with Info they need.
I been thinking about this alot over last several months now as r2r gets new members daily of all skill level and alot of the questions/ answers been asked/ answered so many times already,I understand have search option but if new to r2r or not good with tech may not know how to access or know question been asked so many times already.
But one negative I could think if is If someone goes to start a thread then a " pop up" or get re-directed to a helpful thread then could limit the interactions between people so would have to be thought out properley as interactions between members and more posts/ threads ovbiously more foot traffic therefore more sponsors therefore more money put Into developing the site .
Maybe even something like someone starts a thread and with permission of certain people as enter key word like say " ich" then it automatically tags the " fish medics"
And enter coral pests then it tags a group of members with alot of knowledge with coral pests etc.
So Instead of me tagging " fish medic" or reef squad" it a new updated version where the system tags automatically someone or a group of people.
Ovbiously would need the members permission first and could ask r2r members to nominate themselves and do a poll where the masses then decides which active members would be added into that group to be tagged or an Individual.
This seems like a good idea. If done, I would add that functionality to the website as well (if possible)?

This weekend I was over at my dad's, and he showed me this new app he has where he takes a picture of a plant, and it tells him what it is.

This would be so useful for fish, corals, inverts, and even algae. How many threads are ID threads here?
