Although technology has advanced in the hobby in the last 30 years, the basics, i would imagine, are still the same. Good water conditions = happy fish. Technology just helps make it easier to do.
LED = Light emitting diode. Its a ulta-low wattage bulb with a really long life-span. However, its tiny. Each bulb consumes ~1 watt of power, but its light penetration ability is not as good unless its focused via reflectors.
The new "high-tech" standard is the t5 bulbs if im not mistaken, its the same as your usual fluorescent light except thinner and brighter.
What are you planning to have in a 500g tank?
