    So this might be a really stupid question.... recently turned my fowlr into a reef tank with easy pest corals like pulsating xenia, GSPs and one hammer coral, I want to automate the lights with a timer, this one,

    If i put 2 of these on my lighting as it has 2 plugs will I never have to worry about turning them on and off again after I program them?

    Correct :) however, you may have to periodically adjust them to the correct time as they get off correct time after a while. And if you live in a state with daylights saving's you'll have to adjust them for that as well. But other than that, these work great for simple on/off :)

    Look for one with a grounded plug. I'm assuming you lights have a ground plug as well.


    And yes. Turns them on and off on time
