okay, here's my question:
i know that keeping betta environments in direct sunlight is a BAD idea because it can overheat the water and cause unneccessarily large algae blooms. however, my family lives in an apartment with a balcony walkway to the front door, and that balcony is covered with a canvas awning, so there would only be direct sunlight coming in the front window for a few hours a day, when the angle is exactly right. i was thinking of lining our indoor windowsill with two or three 3gal halfmoon tanks or a 10gal long-and-thin. would this setup provide a dangerous amount of sunlight, or would the awning coverage from outside provide enough protection to make it doable?
