    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?

    If it's working fine now I wouldn't be worried.

    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.
