    So to better control my algae and keep a consistent day/night cycle I am going to pick up a timer for my LED lights (Reef Breeders Value LED). The only problem is when I looked on Amazon to find one they all had pretty bad ratings, I am just wondering if anyone here has some suggestions on which timers are good and which are crap.


    Thanks!

    I used the coral life digital timer power strips before I got my Apex. In fact I still run one for my frag tank in the garage. Never had any issues.

    I used the Coralife Aqualight Power Center Timer which worked well. The dual works better for setting both blue and white on there own schedule.

    I use the marineland analog tuner and its been running like a watch for a couple years. I also have a couple cheaper ones from target/walmart for Christmas trees. When I set up my new tank soon, ill be getting another marineland.
