The light looks a bit on the warm side... What kind of bulb is it?

It looks fine, just make sure you have some plants before you add any fish.

I think redchigh means "warm" as in warm white, similar to daylight or cool white. Warm and cool applied to light refers to the colour temperature, not the "heat" temperature. Warm white is higher in the red (thus "warm"), cool white is higher in the blue (thus "cool").

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
