Outdoor Plant Tub/Pond?

MaximumRide14

Hi guys, I'm considering creating a planted tub so I can sell more plants. This would have to go outside since I'm considering a tub around 200 gallons. I already know where I can get a tub, so that isn't a problem. I'm a little concerned about how how it gets outside here (temp here is 110+ the entire week) and the tub itself is black. I'm assuming I can't keep the tub in direct sunlight, so would I need an alternate light to grow the plants? I'm thinking of getting a few guppies to get rid of mosquitos, but I'm considering a skimmer since I'll need water movements anyways. CO2 will be expensive but I've been dabbling in it for a while, so right now the hardest thing for me to figure out is what size canister to get. If anyone has any advice, I would really appreciate it! I would really like to make this work, but I don't know if it's possible given the heat here in the summer.
