Similar to the +(?)+ replacement style of params, you can also specify keys/values hash in your array conditions:
- ["created_at >= :start_date AND created_at <= :end_date", { :start_date => params[:start_date], :end_date => params[:end_date] }])
+Client.where("created_at >= :start_date AND created_at <= :end_date",

This makes for clearer readability if you have a large number of variable conditions.

If you're looking for a range inside of a table (for example, users created in a certain timeframe) you can use the conditions option coupled with the +IN+ SQL statement for this. If you had two dates coming in from a controller you could do something like this to look for a range:
-Client.where(["created_at IN (?)",
- (params[:start_date].to_date)..(params[:end_date].to_date)])
+Client.where("created_at IN (?)",
+ (params[:start_date].to_date)..(params[:end_date].to_date))
This would generate the proper query which is great for small ranges but not so good for larger ranges. For example if you pass in a range of date objects spanning a year that's 365 (or possibly 366, depending on the year) strings it will attempt to match your field against.
