I put the date, and time. What the current Temp and ph is. And how the tank looks. I make observations on how the corals look and growth. As well as algae growth in my refuge. I try to make equipment notes as things change, and how they change the corals. The key is to change one variable at a time, to see how it affects your tank. Water changes, and dosing is also noted. I always dose the same amount at the same time. I try to observe night feeding compared to day. Basically I try to learn as much as possible about my inhabitants. Like my 6 line Wrasse sleeps under this one rock every night like clock work.

we are absolutely mimicking nature with our hobby

We, as humans, take, modify, capture, interfere with, negatively impact, and destroy everything natural on this earth we encounter.
