Hi and :welcome:

You should be fine using natural illumination on a seahorse fry tank. A couple of things I would keep an eye on, however - temps and nuisance algaes.

A tank sitting in direct sunlight can see significant temp swings. Also, a tank with high nutrient levels sitting in direct sunlight can quickly become an algae farm. :wink:

An algae farm is the perfect place to raise seahorse fry,but definitely watch the temp.
Place nothing above the judgement of your own
mind.
