Really? Very good. I still remember my 1970's effort with a five gallon with garden soil substrate,Lily,and Betta by a window. To this day as you all might have seen.. I still have a tank by a window. I love the sunlight. Why so manY with Sunrooms,Skylights,Greenhouses..wont use them for aquariums has always been a mystery to me. I see mega dollar tanks..using thousand of dollars on artificial lighting..its just makes me wonder why never go as natural as possible?
As a matter of fact I came close to putting my 240 gallon outdoors and put a lean to greenhouse over it...but the cost of heating just gets too much even near San Francisco Bay for a good 5 months of the year.
Welcome. I know after working with natural sciences there is a blend..an art and science of aquarium that's more than dark rooms.
Imagine a large aquarium that makes rotifers in some nursery part of the tank...lol.
