Welcome to the Planted Tank!

There are many discussions, but due to the novelty status, price, and incertainty wrt actual performance, there is some hesitation.

LEDs are being considered in the reefer community as a replacement for costly metal halides.

If you click on the search button above, and type

LED lighting

you will get a lot of discussions about them here at the Planted Tank forums.
