Underwater lighting

Has anyone done or seen underwater lighting in an aquarium? I'm laying out for a new build and I am thinking about doing a standard fluorescent above, and building a custom rock cave on 1/4 of it with a build-in underwater blue light. I've seen some LED strips (like the flexible bubble wands) but I'm not sure if they produce enough spread to light my cave. I had various light setups with underwater halogens in my outdoor pond but I've never seen such in an aquarium...I imagine heat is the issue there?

Maybe something like this:

Amazon.com: T-HMarineUnderwaterLEDLight,Blue-LED-51867: Sports & Outdoors

Current: 50 gal freshwater. Soil substrate, sand/gravel cap, live planted tank, Super HW-302 filter. 2 blue line rasbora, 3 red serpae tetra, 1 black molly, 2 koi angelfish, 1 plecostomus, 2 blue dwarf gourami, 1 common musk turtle named Leo.
