Store Performance Index shows overall performance of your app on app stores. It is based on combined ASO & reviews metrics.
User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
It needs to take into account that some fish, even if they're small, don't do well in small tanks. In the app, I put a molly in a 10 gallon tank and it said it should take up 2 gallons. So at least one molly + other small fish + shrimp perhaps should do nicely in a 10g? Mmm, no. In my experience, that works horribly. I had a molly, 2 platies, and a shrimp in a 10 gallon and after the initial excitement of new fish wore off, I realized that I knew deep down they weren't happy in this setup. I returned the molly to the store and got two more platies to add in her place. The four now seem to be happy as clams, and healthy too. The whole tank used to be riddled with health problems while I had the molly in there. Imagine if I'd initially added mollies to my tank according to the app's suggested ratio of 1 fish:2 gallons... The app really needs to look at the specific needs of each fish more in depth. Some produce more waste than others. I think the app would do good to change the minimum tank size for one fish of a species to the min. tank size for the least # of fish in a school required for them to be happy. (Mollies really shouldn't be kept on their own without others of their kind, and given they're livebearers... Yikes! You're definitely gonna need more than 10 gallons.)
This app works and helps a new aquarium hobbies to out by preventing you from choosing to put non compatible species in the same tank, hopefully newbies will know this means they aren't supposed to. However, it could be improved a lot and have more functions (like a search bar), or have more animals such as a turtle/ crayfish/ frogs/ the kind of animals that go into tanks with fish. It's because of this apps lack of breadth that I'm giving them only 3 stars. Hopefully they improve from being a "list" only about fish to the realization that aquarium hobbyists have many other things in their tank with the fish. It would also be nice if it took into account filtration and water changes though because someone who doesn't plan to clean wouldn't want a full tank and someone who plans to do so excessively can have a higher bioload. Other than this, the app is nice for planning a tank.
Not many fish to choose from many common fish from store not on the list and gallons required seems off to me I added 8 snails and it used gallons required by 8 gallons seems silly since they scavenge and clean if anything it should lower gallons required there are no sucker fish to choose from at least not the common ones sold in stores and you have to buy an expansion to add plants send silly great idea just seems like there need to be more math involved. I added 10 tetras 3 angle fish and 8 snails said I needed 40 gallons min that's funny because I have all those plus two frogs not on list and two sucker fish not on list and one female sword tail if I could add those in guess it would say near 50 gallons needed but I have had all those in a 10 gallon tank for 6 months and everyone is thriving seems off to me great idea if you only plan on 3 or 4 fish it would b great it says angles and tetras shouldn't be together but the co exist great and many charts and people at the fish store say they play well together
Definitely has some good info when it comes to basic compatibility and schooling fish (it’ll add a warning in the corner if you have fewer than the ideal number). It is a bit limited if you have a more advanced setup though, especially when it comes to risky compatibility (ie large fish with small schooling fish can work if the tank is large and densely planted). Be aware that all saltwater and plant life are paid additions. (Have not purchased so no comment on accuracy of info) My main issue is the “size” info - it’s says S/M/L/etc bit doesn’t give any measurements, which is important to know. It’d also be a good idea to have a spot to input the current size of your fish, in the case of fish obtained as juveniles or fry where the tank requirements will change over time. I’d like to see more loaches and corydoras on the starter list, and more freshwater life - more snail species, other creatures that can live with fish, etc. Someone else mentioned a search option and I agree, or at least have the fish sorted by family and/or habitat. Note for the developers, there does not seem to be a way to delete a tank if you want to take it down.
When most people go to sites such as this it’s because they have a question that they want answered... I found it informative and well organized, and in terms I as a novice were comfortable with. I recommend... but my 11 year old recommended first. I like that it’s age and user friendly. They do make great suggestions and I was left wishing I had begun stocking my tank differently according their compatibility notes from the beginning. I would like to see an option where one could build the tank they have as a base or template and then have compatibility matches linked within the pages. I think it’s an idea that would make your app more useful.
