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").
