I fixed my blue LED's .
3 of the LED's wernt working. So i emailed the guy and he said he would send me another set. So i was moving the broken set about and now all the LED's work. So i might have 2 sets of 48 Blue LED's in my tank soon what do you think?

It sounds like you have a loose or bad splice, connector or solder joint. Usually these are easily repaired if you can access them and are handy with a soldering iron. Then you wont have to worry about an intermittant connection.

Oh, the lights look awesome!
