LED wattage

I notice on LEDs that they have different wattages. Is a higher watt LED better than a lower? What does a higher watt do better than a lower watt or vise versa?

They use more power, thats pretty much all it means, some can put out more light at less watts so its really meaningless as far as picking one for plants or fish bassed on watts.
