My current 55 gallon tank is running with 4 bulb 54 watt T5s.I am able to grow some SPS, LPS and a clam without problems. I think you and do it the growth may not be all that great. Here is a photo of it.

About the sunlight coming in the window- I have seen totally awesome tanks that use solatubes for supplemental lighting and they have no algae at all.
Here's a stunning example of someone using natural light-

I don't think it's as much to worry about as people make out.

The lazy side of me wants to leave it in that place so I won't need to move my current tank out is the way. But I am going to make the move. I will be asking questions about the move this week. Well as soon as I can find a 40 gallon breeder to make a sump.

Order came in from BRS today what I got was two magnum 7 powerheads (huge) a magdrive 12 a digital thermometer and foam pads for my reactor. All I need now is for my lights to show up a 40 breeder and I will be able to get going.
