Default Fire Salamanders and Lighting

I'm researching Fire Salamanders now and realizing they like room temperature (62-70). If I want to have them in a terrarium, even with low light plants I'll need lighting. What are some recommendations for lighting that will show off the tank and grow plants but wont increase the temperatures in the tank (or at least will only minimally)?

Sounds like you want a daylight LED strip. Look for a colour temperature of about 6500K. This should look good, grow plants well, and give off minimal heat.

I would think you could get away with some full spectrum led fish tank lights without much of a temp rise at all
