fert regimen for a 5 gallon in sunshine for a few hours/day

I'm thinking of setting up two 5 gallon low tech tanks for growing out extra plants - they would rest on window sills that receive a few hours of direct sunlight a day and bright diffuse light other than the few hours direct light. I was going to use Flourish Excel for carbon plus EI ferts. Do you think the Flourish Excel will provide sufficient carbon for the plants so that the tanks are not smothered in algae?

What fert regimen would you recommend?
