Best GoPro 3+ filters for better video underwater?

When I had my first GoPro (Hero 2) I tried numerous red filters with little success.

Now I'm using a Chinese knock off and have had similar bad luck with the filters.

So, am considering getting a Hero 3+ or a GoPro 4 Black (from my research, the video quality is very similar for my purposes to any of the newer, much more expensive ones).

So, am looking for a GOOD filter or filter set that will make my 20-60 feet dives in Gulf of Mexico waters a lot better looking, since currently it looks mostly green due to loss of red after about 20 feet.

Eric, when my cameras finally flood I think I'm going to go with this.... It's pricey, but the camera is made for diving. The white balance is compensated for being underwater, unlike the GoPro and knockoffs. https://www.paralenz.com/

Good idea. Older Hero - I have looked at some of my HeroHD video with SRP filters and it still looks good. https://youtu.be/wxDe0gjFU6k and https://youtu.be/YxX4bK4Egoo
