Yep, walmart has timers for about $5 each. Thats the best solution and believe me, it will be a godsend even when you are home. lol I love having my lights do all the work for me, also don't have to worry about it when I go out for dinner or to a friends house. Consistency is the key.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
