Hi guys, new to the forum here. I am about to start a project I have been wanting to do for a while. I am going to build an underwater led light. I want it to be really bright and green in color to draw in bait fish and stripers on our lake. I and considering using luxeon star leds in green with a 40 degree lens, and driver from them and heatsinks. Now my main question now is if i build this with heatsinks and enclose it in a acrylic box like a tiny aquarium and it is always underwater when its on will the leds get to hot? I dont know how the guys that sell these leds actually cool them down. Also if anyone has any advice on this project I would greatly appreciate it.
