Hi!
I'm not an expert on lighting but I think it should be ok, I've heard people use it. The reds are meant to help photosynthesis or something
And a happy new year!

Thank`s for your reply. Am asking if you know about which colors calm my pet`s down.
The lighting is not like Christmas lights, but change from one color to the next as i choose.

Is it a DIY fixture, or do you have a product link?
Which tank is it on and what is the height of the tank?
What wattage are the diodes?

If it's around 18" high, you could be ok for plants. Generally around 18" is the max/border line for 6700k [T5's] [I think, without cross checking]

10000k tends to be better suited for 2 foot tanks.

Of course, the above is based on the lights being directly above the tank, if you have them raised (about 4", 10cm) you may be ok. LEDs are relatively new to FW planted aquariums, so I'm not entirely sure how it works [I'm better with Reef tanks and LED]

The colours in your fixture seem pretty good though, just might be a matter of height.

See if the following gives you some help: https://www.fishlore.com/fishforum/lighting/133645-2900-lumen-leds.html
