I'm looking for a good and affordable phone attachment that will increase the quality of pictures and videos I have with my ants. Any suggestions?

Macro lenses don't matter as much as proper lighting. Using a light on either side drastically improves picture quality.

Lighting is so important, I CANNOT express it enough. While a decent macro lens is important, LIGHTING IS KEY!
