The CO2 gauges say the CO2 tank has liquid CO2 in it, so the tank pressure is about 800 psi. The other gauge says the regulator is set at 40 psi output pressure, which is usable, but the needle valve will be pretty sensitive to very slight movements. That regulator looks like one with a pre-set output pressure.

I don't know the dimensions of your glass tank, so I don't know if that is too much light (unlikely) or too low (unlikely).
