Can you not lay the phone flat on the viewer plate, if not then reflections are a whole different ball game?
My viewer is too small for that :( that's a very clever idea. I should get a bigger one... Or a smaller phone....

Ideally with those I think you want to be able to lay your phone down on them.

There was a thread not too long ago about an app that could use as a par meter. They put their phones in a waterproof bag, ziplock i think. You could put some RO in your viewer as previously suggested then use your phone in a bag.

Mike, I’m following more in your footsteps day by day.

I wasted time saying a certain type of light isn’t the best thing ever. Many paths to a successful coral growth, there are.

now I just need koolaid for a nitrate test

new filtration.
took out the SURF4X. cleaning it up and boxing it and the air pump for backups to the 150.
already seeing a difference.
and fishdude...."surface skimmer" doesn't count. :cool:

home.
fun vacation.
house/doggie/tank sitter did a good job.
150 looks good.
sadly lost the tomeni from the tub.
it was very skittish and would hide behind the pump housing.
she didn't notice it was gone. I found it dried out under the water mix cart.:(

Sorry to here you lost one. So am I understanding you are running an HOB on your tank, no skimmer no sump?
thanks.
it's supposed to be a hob but i can't hobbit ;) because the tub edge is too wide. so I sat the whole thing in the tub temporarily.
probably going to end up with another tub below for a sump eventually. unless the hob does a well enough job.
no skimmer. i'm skimmerless. always have been. always will be.:cool:

Sorry to hear that…sounds like your next project is building a roof for your tank.
two blue chromis that were getting beat up in the display tank apparently like the tub.
thinking no more fish, just inverts and frags.
