    I know that what determines the colour of light an LED makes is the distance between the anode and cathode.

    Does the space required (the band gap) to emit the light limit the smallest size that LEDs could ever get?

    Is there ever a chance of seeing nano sized LEDs?

    The band gap isn't a physical distance. It's a property of solids. I don't know what would limit the smallest size LED that could be made, but it wouldn't be what you described.
