I just stumbled across a company called superbrightled.com not sure if they will work I'm planing on buying them just to see. They are very cheap compaired to other sites and they have some water proff ones too.

I have bought from superbrightleds.com great products and great service.

Now keep in mind majority of their lighting is designed as accent lighting for small tanks they probably have lots of options to fit the bill. But they don't carry much in regards to lighting for larger tanks
