Tank location?

Hi guys

I have a fluval spec v with stock lighting. I currently have it on a kitchen worktop, this position is under a sloping roof window. Will this cause a problem with the extra daylight or will it benefit the plants that i want to grow?

Diana Walstad's book recommends aquariums next to windows. I think you should give it a try, it being easy enough to relocate a 5 gallon tank if you can't control the algae. You should make a journal so we know how it goes.
