[APD] Natural light - SkyLight

Are there any disadvantages to using natural light for a very large planted tank.( about 3000L.)
I'm thinking of using Solar tubes/ Skylight to provide the bulk of the light needed to 
support plant growth and adding  metal Halides from 6 to 9pm so I can enjoy the tank. 

I'm I right in asuming if I keep the water parameters in check then the sunlight itself should not cause 
more algea problems than artificial lights ? 

I think in the 2003 AGA contest there was 6000L pond from Singapoer that was entered but 
the details were vere sparce
