You will love the ada tank, I love my 60P! Be very careful when you place rocks, or use planting tongs in the tank, my metal tongs totally scratched the inside of the tank...
I can't comment much about that light, it does look pretty expensive for what it is, judging from the photo. It doesn't seem to have any reviews either..
You should be fine without a heater, here in HK I don't have to run a heater, my tanks water gets to 68 at the coldest, and 82 at the hottest. My ember tetras, cardinal tetras, celestial pearl danios, dwarf cories, amano shrimp, cherry shrimp all do great with those temps. Unless you want to keep CRS/tiger shrimp, most freshwater tropical livestock should make it through your cali temp swings (emphasizing on the heat).
