Lighting for Lampeye killifish

New to this forum so hello! .

I have recently set up a new tank in my kitchen (see avatar/attached - still empty of inhabitants) - it is 110L and approx. 3 ft long. I want to stock this with lampeye killifish which I have kept before - this time I want to make it species-only and therefore really make it suited.

One thing im not sure on is lighting - I want something that's really going to bring out the colour of their eye and their iridescent beauty. I was looking at perhaps getting a 1ft fluval aquasky LED light as this is adjustable in terms of colours and levels of lighting along with allowing not tones of light as would not be the full length of the tank..

Just wondered if anyone has any suggestions or advice when it comes tot he lighting really - and if anyone knows if this light is any good.

Im based in England so apologies if this is not a familiar product for you guys overseas .

ANY RGB adjustable light will allow you to target certain colors..
My only possible "issue" w/ almost all LED's is the low amount of cyan in the light output.. more for this part. fish IF I interpret the on line photos
