Default Lighting question

Hey guys, I have had a pair of R Amazonica Iquitos for over a month now and even though I know they are a shy breed, I don't see them much. Has been often days in between. They often come out more when the vivs light is off.
I know they primarily feed dusk/dawn so this is probably imitating their natural habitat, but I'm just worried the light I currently have is potentially too bright and that's why they hide more when it's on.

I have an exo terra 12x12x18 and Im using one of the 13W Exo Terra Natural Lightbulbs. It's been great for my plants and most have doubled in size since planting them, but just worried it's potentially too bright for the frogs.

Does this sound ok? Would you suggest something dimmer if too bright? Would a dimmer bulb then affect the plant life?
Any help on this would be really appreciated
