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.

Smile No More 3 Gallon Tank for me :)

I have upgraded to a 10 gallon tank! I will more than likely start a new thread with my tank setup and updates :) My guppies are much happier now! Thank you everyone for all of the advice! 3 gallons was just obscene to keep more than one fish, and I am not sure I would have been the best fish parent in the world with all of the maintenance involved to keep them alive in that little prison.

I will post my tank setup soon with everything I have. Thanks again :)
