    Excel Calculator for the mathematically challenged

    I ran across this thread and forum from a google search for "determining water volume of aquarium" I was wondering the exact thing that Reef Sparky educated us all on. I am very new to SW Aquariums.. I just bought and set up a Bio Cube 29 and I wanted to know this info for running all of the tests and adding the various supplements...

    I come from a strong background in Excel. So, I did all of the calculations for my own system in an excel sheet and that's when it dawned on me that maybe some of you would like to use it as well.
    So, I cleaned it up and made it look a little prettier and I'm sharing with you all.

    Please check it out and let me know if there are any problems... I did not do anything other than use Sparky's logic and calculations so I believe that it is correct.

    I have saved it with ReefSparky's example calculations in the sheet although, I had to make him start with 107 instead of 105 since he rounded up to 100 in his example. My numbers work out the same as his though.

    *If an Admin wants to save it and host it from 3reef.com that is fine by me...just let me know so I can remove it from mine.
