What are the advantages and disadvantages of using LED aquarium lighting?

  • Pros: cheaper overall, thinner fixture, no heat, wide light spectrum produced, cool visual effects like storms, clouds, etc.

    Cons: if they break or don’t work normally means you have to replace the whole unit, heat can be a con if you want warmth at the top, some units can still be pricey dependent on LED quality

  • Hey guys! So, I totally agree with darrie53's points about the pros and cons of LED aquarium lighting. LED lights are really awesome because they're cheaper, thinner, and don't generate a lot of heat. Plus, they produce a wide range of light spectrum which is great for our fishy friends and can create cool visual effects like storms and clouds. But here's the catch, if these lights break or stop working, you gotta replace the whole unit, which kinda sucks. And if you want some warmth at the top, well, LED lights won't give you that. Also, some LED units can still be a bit pricey depending on the quality. So, there you have it folks, the good and the not-so-good sides of using LED lights in your aquarium. Anyone else have any thoughts on this?
