Have you gone online and looked for underwater lighting kits or any DIY material on the subject? I know it can be done, but how to do it safely is the issue.

I just googled "aquarium underwater lighting" and it is full of kits and other stuff.
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!

We bought an expensive light w/ bubbler combo. I liked it at first but now I don't. It requires monthly cleaning to keep it from clogging where the bubbles come out. 6 months later it does not work as well as it used to.
