    Rob, Daylight sun will most likely give you a rather yellow effect on the tank without supplimented Actinics to brighten up the colours of your corals. You'd get great growth from the Direct Sun plus its free. I personally would add in a low wattage MH for those days when its overcast or rainy. It won't cost a bomb to run for a few days a month. Have a look at Bob the Builders Tank which has a skylight and extra globes as well.
