I am using it right over the water, the led's are waterproof, you can submerge them without a problem. But they are just slightly above the waterline.

I see some people incorporate blue led's in their light setup, would there be a benefit for me to do that?

The Blue LEDs usually are for moonlighting. I sure am glad you made this thread, I want to do the same on my soon to be 20 gal tank!! Haha what a coincidence!

that's what i did to all my tanks, i made all diy LED hoods and they work great for a fraction of the cost.

first i make the housing


add some LED strips and connect them up


alternate blue and white to give a nice GLOW.


i add a quick release for easy maintenance


when i'm done, you don't even know the hood is there.
