So I found more lights online and was wondering witch will be best
Ive checked the lumens and I really like number 1. on the list but is it to good to be true?

1.https://www.amazon.com/TOPBRY-Submersible-Waterproof-Multi-color-Decoration/dp/B0769F8BYQ/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1527714130&sr=8-5&keywords=pond+light&refinements=p_n_shipping_option-bin:3242350011,p_72:2661618011&th=1
Idk why this link goes to the canadian amazon but these exact same lights are in the usa store and have better reviews

2. http://www.petsandponds.com/en/ponds-and-supplies/c203815/p17645429.html

Because my ponds inside we might not be adding rocks so how would I weigh it down? will the suctions cups be good on epdm line? or should i just do a ring light for my pump? But even if i do ring light I might not be even able to find for my type of pump
Thanks! :) Tell me if you have suggestions for other good lights you have!

I have ones similar to the first one but no remote control. I have had the lights for 3 years now with no problems. The suction cups are a total waste. Get some 4" ceramic tile squares and tape the lights to them with duck tape. You will need to pull them every few months to clear algae off the lens. The plug on these lights needs to be kept dry.

The ceramic tiles are light and edges rounded. You can wrap the whole tile in tape. You said your pond was inside. Is the outlet outside? I just keep a small plastic box over my plugs.

I have the second choice and I love them the 1 watt is just right for some abeyance. I have 6 across the pond that's 26 feet wide an it is just right. but the pond is new I have no clue on longevity.
