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 also be very interested in the results of such an experiment.

I wonder if the concept of direct sunlight causing algae is just a myth that has been ingrained in us so we don't doubt it at all anymore :???:

Every book on aquariums sternly tells you to set up aquariums away from direct sunlight... so that's what I've always done. What if it's not really the case? :-s

You never know, it could be a similar "truth" to the one stating that Phosphates cause algae...
