Compact LED clip-on-style LED lights are perfect for Nano Tanks, or for spotlighting specific areas of larger tanks. The unique design of an LED bulb focuses light, making the colors of your aquatic creatures more vibrant while creating a “shimmering effect” throughout the water column. Another benefit of LED lighting is that they produce much less heat than traditional aquarium lighting so that you don’t have to worry about affecting your water temperature. This greatly reduces the usage time of cooling fans and aquarium chillers, which equals lower energy costs. Also, most LED lights have a life span of 50,000 hours or more, which essentially eliminates the need for replacement bulbs. Combine that with the energy savings on your utility bill, and it’s quite clear that LED lights are the wave of the future.
