    Any one use the coralife digital timer. I just got 2 on ebay for $20 each. Are they hard to set up?

    What about jebo heaters. Anyone have any feedback on them?

    They are a timer that has multiple outlets. That are either always on, or on or off. They can have different times for during the week or even multiple on off cycles during the day.

    Good price. I Got a coralife timer but it's not digital. Did you get the instructions with them?

    The digital one loses time too. Mine lost about 20 minutes over the last 4 months.

    So far I've had no problem. Everything is still going on and off at the times I set.
