Yellow Night glasses?

So, I've seen a lot of tank pics, and they are usually very washed out in blue. I see they sell yellow film to put in front of your camera and it takes the blue away.
I have an old set of nigh time driving glasses, that have yellow lenses. Low and behold it works! Wearing them makes the tank look way different. And putting it in front of my phone camera works too.

Thatís great. I picked up some colored filters a while back but didnít get a chance to experiment with them before I shut down my tank.

...or you could adjust the white balance on the camera.

You can adjust the white balance on cell phones? Or do you mean edit the photo after? Or do you mean on digital cameras?

Try this before you buy glasses. The glasses may not match your specific light color temperature. These come with many different shades of orange and you can use the one that matches your tank setup.
