Can I use a tank or aquarium for planting veggies?

I live in an apartment and there's no means for me to garden outside. I don't have a backyard, and my screen windows don't open. Besides that, I have cats, so I need to protect my plants, but also provide sunlight. Is there any way I could use a tank and special lighting to pull off planting vegetables?... show more I live in an apartment and there's no means for me to garden outside.
