Ok so Anubias and Java Fern are low light plants but what i want to know is will they survive (or even grow) with just natural sunlight on an aquarium (i.e. with no actual tank lighting)

If they get some natural light in to the tank they will grow.
If the light dose not penetrate in to the tank they may not grow. They may not die either.

I had java fern in a tank for 2 years with no direct light source. The only light was the room light.
It showed signs of deficiencies like potassium, calcium and magnesium but it didn't die.

If you could even stick a desk lamp on the tank it would grow them.
