If you are up for some simple DIY'ing, check these out:

I'm using these as (non-submersed) lunar lights but they claim they are "completely waterproof". Cheap too. I'm running them off a 9V wall wart pirated from an old cordless phone base so basically the whole setup cost $11 (b/c shipping is very reasonable).

The included wire leads are long, so you can definitely run the wire out of the tank before it has to be spliced to a connector. PM me if you need me to measure the wires...

6g Fluval Edge journal
45g ADA 90p (early days)
2g Do!Aqua cube (unplanted for now)

Edge Tuning: 26W lighting conversion - concealed pressurized CO2 - HOB CO2 injection - nano HOB heater - lunar lights
