Got a nice shock today

So i spilled some water taking out my skimmer collection cup. Didn't really pay attention until I put the cup back and got a little shock when my arm touched one of my Tao led fixtures.

Should i even attempt to plug it back in? After it dries that is.

You'll really need to open it up. Does it smell burnt from all open air ports?

I'd personally open it.. too much at stake.

Besides the dust, I'm not noticing anything out of the ordinary

It should be fine, as long as you unplugged it quickly there shouldno be any damage. They are surprisingly resilient units.
