I really appreciate you taking the time to look at the fiber and respond. I've been through the Cleerline catalog online and saw the indoor/outdoor rated fiber but wasn't sure about it's longevity in wet conduit.

The armored stuff looked like what I need, but didn't know if it would work with the small junction boxes. At all locations the conduit comes in and out of the bottom of a 1-gang bell box positioned vertically.

For fiber, I'd usually come into an 8x8 or 10x10 junction box which leaves room for a service loop and terminations if needed.

Here's a photo of what I have to work with. It's the box in the foreground with the fish tape beside it.


Couldn't you just cut and extend conduit, add some strut to post, and install a larger junction box?

The photo shows one of 5 junction boxes.  Swapping the box at this location and one other wouldn't be too difficult, but the other 3 are mounted to CMU walls with a plaster finish and the junction boxes are sandwiched between other pipes and junction boxes so a lot would have to be reworked to fit a larger box.
