+1 to algae nightmare. Just keep an eye on it and if you can don't let the sun hit it for too long.

Ok...... I'm gonna to listen to your warnings and throw them out the window. Perhaps if I was a novice and did not consider co2 or fertilizers but everything is balanced and getting lots of light.

I have seen natural light tanks im greenhouses but never for window. two panes of glass will not diffuse the light like a greenhouse does but good luck with it I would like to see how it turns out!
