Default Lighting Question.

Hi! I have a couple Blue Spots and would like to add a little lighting to my enclosure. They are currently in a terrestrial tank with a live moss substrate. The tank I acquired came with an aquarium hood with lights. I was wondering if that light source would be healthy for them. I know they like dark and cool environments, so I wasn't sure what kind of lighting aquarium hoods give off. Is there a certain kind of light I can purchase for the hood that is friendly for them? I plan on turning it off at night to keep their light cycles normal for them. Let me know what you all think!

Fluorescent lights are cooler. They have LED lights now for tanks at reasonable prices.
