    Wow something so simple, but so pricey.. Looks like they copied Koralia's mounting design.

    I was having a discussion about this just the other day. My age has caught up with me and I have to take my glasses off and get inches away from something to see anything in detail. Obviously, aquariums cause me difficulty because my nose keeps bumping into the glass and I can't get any closer. For hobbyists with really poor eyesight like me, $65 is money well spent.

    Dude!!! I was thinking about the very same thing!! Add felt on the front one and the scratchy thing on the inside part and this would be the greatest thing to see corals while doing maintenance at the same time.

    Recreational maintenance is something that sounds very, very appealing, doesn't it? :)
