Might have to join the other community just to see other peoples experiances with sunlight. I have to admit it is an attractive idea.
The bug is currently biting me hard to make more tanks.... I am trying to resist it for now. Lighting is just such a large cost to setting up a new tank (especially when you have two aquariums sitting empty (nothing but the glass, no stand or filter). If I could stock with my own plants, put on a hob, diy stand (current stand is a diy) and use natural lighting I just might be able to afford it.
Really want to see updates on how this tank goes if you go natural lighting.
Oh, great link - currsus, now have another forum and theory to grok.
