Today I got a new Current Satellite LED light for one of my 40 gallon tanks, and while I was setting it up, I accidentally dropped one side of it in the water. It's working fine, but it looks like there is a bit of condensation behind the plastic on the light. I have been running Current Satellite lights on 30 of my other tanks, and I've never had one stop working. Do you think it will be OK?

I thought that was supposed to be one of the draws of LED's, that they could get damp without dying on you? (Or so I've heard...)

I really hate my LED-lit tanks. They're both really awful TopFin kits, and the tanks are so dark! :(

The light that I accidentally got wet is working fine now, I have never had a Current Satellite light die, but the finnex light on my 20 gallon corroded and died in less than a year, and I used to have Marineland lights in the past, and all of those corroded and stopped working.
