I'm just now getting back into reefing and i have noticed that a lot of people are lighting their tanks with LED's and are able to support clams and other SPS corals any insight would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

haha yes! i haven't set up a nano since college (2006) and plan to get back into reefing after a few years break. I've noticed my biggest issue prior with nanos was overheating from my lights. Previously for me LEDS were used for the moonlight effect..so maybe i'm wayyy outdated as well. bump to any new information about LEDS.

you'll still need a fan to keep your heatsink cool and prevent many LEDs from burning out. but they do run much cooler than other light variants.

Just park yourself in the Lighting forum, and start reading. You'll be there a while, but, NR is one of the best places to find out information on LEDs. If you have any questions that you can't seem to get answered, you can always PM guys like me that are elbow deep in this stuff :)
