I have this big window overlooking a site I want to put an aquarium with a lot of plants.Will natural sunlight be enough for plants, it would be natural timing so i suppose I would'nt need much light equipment... What do you think?

I would think you will still need to use light fixture with plant bulbs also. I don't think the plants will get enough exposure to direct sunlight and the intensity will be decreased coming through the glass. Also haveing direct sunlight hitting your tank can cause algae issues.
