Why don't you use a desk lamp or something for a light? It would due a lot better than sunlight. Sunlight is difficult because it's going to heat your water up very fast which is harmful to your girls.
Also yes, you can just take the base off and let it float. You can also get something like this from your local craft store/wal-mart: http://www.joann.com/66-grape-ivy-ga...prd_01786839a/
and then just make sure there are no metal bits in them, take off basses if they have them and float them :D
EDIT: I stand corrected then about the VT's, nvm, thanks for the info! And you can post pages, just not other forum threads.
