Lol! I've done this before. The underwater effect. I mean. I can't really describe it to you, just go where your brain leads you. Here's an example of my 'underwater wallpaper'. It was created a while ago.

i know it's not the greatest, but here's a tip. Use the reflected gradient A LOT along with blending options and such. [Overlay and softlight especially]

i won't say anything more. I have my secrets too. =)

Good luck and hope I helped!

Liberal use of the distort>wave filters on multiple blue-green gradient layers set at different blending modes (soft light, hard light, overlay) between your other layers (character art, background art, text) works well too.

I have yet to try making an underwater background, but if I had to do it, the first I would do is to look for stock photos of it and study them to understand how do it... that's the most simple tip I can give you. Browse www.sxc.hu, or google, look for stock photos and pay attention at how the the colour/light are shown, and try to imitate that. Filters. brushing and blending modes "should" do the trick.
