Although using LED lights in your aquarium has now been around for a number of years their legitimacy is still questioned.
And no matter what side of the spectrum you’re on, here are just a few of the many benefits LED lights have to offer.
1. Super Low Energy Consumption (So you save money)
LED lights use very little power and as noted below last much longer than standard aquarium lighting options. This helps reduce the annual cost to run your aquarium.
Save even more money an try making your own LED Aquarium Lights.
2. Very, Very Low Heat Output (Safe for kids)
LED aquarium lighting produces almost no heat which is much safer than say a fluorescent or incandescent fixture.
3. Very, Very Long Life Span (So you save more money)
LED “bulbs” can last much longer than other lighting types in your aquarium. Most LED lights can last between 30,000 to 50,000 hours.
4. Lots Of Color Options (You fish will never be bored)
Because LED’s are so versatile many different color options can be applied and controlled with a remote.
Color options not only provide a cool effect they can also help provide a full lighting spectrum when used in a planted tank.
5. Adjustable Light Intensity (Just right)
Some higher-end models come with a remote that allows you to select different options, such as daylight, night light, and other effects.
LED lighting systems can also easily be adjusted by adding or removing lights.
