What is the volume (size) of the area (or the control volume) that Cyclops takes the reading from? According to the manual I understand that it needs to be at least 3 in. from bottom. What is the area that the Cyclops scans in order to get a reading?
In my experiment I am taking readings at very fine scale (mm), so this is very important.

We recommend at least a volume of 38 cubic inches for calibration to assure that light interference is minimized.  For very high concentrations that volume may be much less, depending on the concentration used.  For example in a very concentrated solution the light detected is going to happen very close to the surface of the sensor, therefore it is only looking at a very small volume of water.
