go onto reef central, canreef ... wherever and search for water cooled LED

copper being the most commonly used metal for heat coils will leach into solution with prolonged contact with water.

the effort and money involved does not make sense when other options are used. its like making a car with 8 wheels, you can do it, but what's the point when 4 will do?

My mind works a little different than that of others. I see your analogy but it doesn't really make since in the way I envisioned it. I viewed this project more as trying to make a car with regenerative braking. Sure it's a little more complicated and it's not the same thing that we have seen for the last decades but it just might work.
