When looking at getting LED lighting for your aquarium, it can seam overwhelming when considering all the features and options that you will have to choose from. However, it doesn’t have to be all that difficult if you keep it simple. I have learned that applying a few simple concepts, or rules of thumb, LED lighting become a whole lot easier to understand. The below is what I have learned. This is not and all inclusive set of instructions, just something simple to get you started if you have no experience with LED lighting. Most people do not pay attention to the angle of the lenses used or do not understand how different the wattage can be with a LED diode (as compared to a T5 or T8 bulb) and they end up with a fixture that really will not meet their long term needs.
I have included some simple guidelines for both fresh water and marine environments so you may also have a few other points of comparison.
