Is a hydronium (H3O+) less clear than a water pool (H2O)?

    Not that I know of any hydronium pools, I was just wondering if there would be a difference in clarity or not (as in, harder to observe the bottom)

    First, there is no such thing as a separated H3O+, it always comes with a counterion.

    Second, no - acid solutions are not less clear than a pure water (unless the anion is colored).
