For taking pics on iPhone I found holding a pair of sunglasses infront of the lens helps a lot. Really helps bring out the true color and removes the blue overwhelming the photo.

Very cool, however I will still opt for sunglasses as I don't have to make a trip to the city to a photography shop. I live in a rural town that doesn't offer much past a Walmart.

Looks great! The sunglasses trick really does work. My 3D glasses helped a little bit... Not as much as the sunglasses though.

I turned the whites up on my tank per Gregcoyote's advice, and I definitely took more accurate pictures.
As i usually view it-





And with whites up (to me, this is how it looks regularly)

I tried the trick of taking the photo with sunglasses in front of the lenses on my phone and it worked surprisingly well

For the most part the systems are the same, just different brand stickers on them. I personally have a 7 stage 100gpd unit from aquasafecanada. They all install the same way typically and do the same job so find one that is best price and shipping.
