For my freshwater aquariums I tend to use the JBL Easytest 6 in 1 which offer a very fast way of check Aquarium stats.
JBL has released their Testing Strips in combination with a color card and app which allows you to scan an track your Aquarium stats so i decided to give it a try.
The App is quite simple – you create an account and register your aquariums. Once you scan your measurements you can track them online a see a history of your stats.
Once you create multiple measurements you can track the history of your stats as seen here:
In the case above you can visually see the impact of a 30% water change on the stats.
The App also informs you about recommended task in order to fix your stats, along with some own product recommendations of course 😉

So I am currently at the Arube Atmosphere EMEA 2018 conference in Croatia.
Everytime I pack my bags I have to wage on wether to bring my camera and gear or to just take pictures with my phone which is not nearly as satisfying because the lack of manual control and framing due to the lack of lenses.
I have already downgraded to a mirrorless camera (EOS M5) to make travel with a camera easier, however – the size of my lenses remains the same and takes up most of the space.
Since I wanted to focus on taking some snapshots I decided to go with my phone which I carry around almost everywhere. The small space you need to bring comes with some caveats:
Lets look at the bright side:
Once factor is not really that much of a deal, Image composure and using your creative mind – you can still play around alot but camputring the exact moment without a good shutter button can be an issue here.
Would I give up my camera? – No way
Would I go through the extra effort to bring my lenses? – Definitely yes
What about international flight? – Well depends on the situation but If I travel for business purposes the awnser will amost always be no due to the amount of equiptment I already bring with me.
Am I satisfied with the resultas? – Sort of but I would really to have High Resolution RAW files but sometimes its just the memory that count that you can bring back alive with a snapshot.
Here are some results:
