I'm in NYC and the big window it's next to is a Northern window.. Any idea how that might affect it in terms of light amount? I'm gonna pay attention tomorrow and see how many hours of really good sunlight it gets. I hope I get enough light to support this no-tech Nano!

I do a 100% water change each week just because it's so easy. Pics are in the low tech forum.

Years ago I also had a 29g in a western window that did wonderfully with hot blazing afternoon sun.
