I responded to your PM but will repeat here so others know. A tank in a bright-light window is quite possible, I have done this with a 10g and had reasonably good plant growth. Keep direct sun off with blinds, it can quickly heat the tank and will cause algae.
Good plants for this setup are Brazilian Pennywort and pygmy chain sword. Both will grow fast. Other good plants are crypts but they are much more demanding and fussy, and I would not suggest them until you have "mastered" the basics. Crypts are expensive and tend to "melt" with any change in conditions. The pennywort and swords are hardy and easy, and they grow very fast.
