Apex controller for aquariums, it's not cheap. Might also want to look at rapid led, or reef radiance, they might have something that will work for you.

thanks but i'm not trying to do it wirelessly. it has to be wired. and simple. like having a board with 16 led and using tasker (android app) to control them separately.I'm also not trying to use bright or high powered leds just simple .5v leds

Thanks though

How skilled are you with DYI electronics? I think a setup using an arduino board could do the trick. Something like:

I'm pretty skilled with electronics. I'm not trying to control all the led in a whole but seperatelt. I haven't used arduino before but it shouldn't take long to learn.

Thanks ill have to check it out. Been meaning to get one any way
