Unless it isn't. Tropical can mean anything from barren desert to deep shade. It's the industry standard grow light. Probably fry orchids and some mosses.

That is an incandescent bulb, that will produce too much heat and cook that little tank. Your best bet would be an LED bulb or fixture, something around 6500K. Efficient lighting without the excessive heat.
