it is a pita to change the water try to lower the TDS, damn tank has never done any water change since November 2010, and RCS had stop breeding a couple month ago due to high TDS.
will get the water change done in a couple days and take the altum home.
Of course, then will make a DIY lens and try it on my phone, will see how those altum look in my phone pictures.

The thing is Kiran, that homemade lens? Probably better quality, no, it is better quality, than the cell phone lens you're holding it in front of. In this case megapixels really don't matter because cell phone lenses are garbage to start with.
Good idea with nice implementation and pretty decent shots by the way.
Thank you! I really do like it and was pleasantly surprised with the magnification AND focus -- I can take much better pictures with it than these. It's just REALLY hard to take pictures of shrimp because one minute movement the shrimp makes can really mess up the focus.
With a steady hand, I can take a perfect picture of my fingerprint, which is really cool. I also had this microprocessor chip from an IBM Z10 Mainframe computer, with 993 MILLION transistors, and it is really cool underneath this lens. I might upload pics later.
