What lighting are you using?

Excellent!

Stainless steel is ok, and will not affect the water parameter of the tank. At least not for many centuries.

Aluminium on the other hand ...

Aluminium is very soft, combined with acidic aquarium water, and there might be some reaction to the metal.

Keep an eye on it.
