Aquarium Apps for iPhone and iPod Touch


Invertebrate Pocket Reference is a guide for marine aquarists available for download through the iTunes App Store and is compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch.

According to the description, the application will help you determine if an animal you are considering purchasing or collecting is suitable for a saltwater or reef aquarium.

The application includes the Latin name of the animal, its size, diet, behavior, lighting requirements, whether it is reef-friendly, venomous and more.

This is the second iPhone/iPod Touch application for aquarium hobbyists developed by zMac Consulting, LLC. The first, Aquarium Abbreviations, become available last month.

For more information, visit iTunes or click on the image accompanying this post. The Aquarium Abbreviations app is available for free and the Invertebrate Pocket Reference is $1.99. As of today, there is a single 5-star review for each application.

If anyone downloads these applications, please leave us a comment and let us know how they are. My stinkin' G1 doesn't have these apps available in the Andriod Market.

Go ahead, rub it in iPhone users. :-P

UPDATE: ReefBuilders posted about an aquarium-related iPhone app yesterday from Seachem that is available in the iTunes app store for free! If you know of anymore, please leave us a comment.
