I'm not sure how the setup is for the fixture youre talking about. If it has a single cord then there should be a timer. If there are not separate controls for the blue and white then pass on that fixture.
This is the fixture Carey, and are moonlights the LED?

I wanted the timer built in for ease but mr x brought up a good point that if it does have a timer and it goes bad im pretty much SOL unless I can fix the bad timer so now I'm a bit skeptical about built in timers.

Has anyone else experienced that happening?

I think even though it's not necessary for the fish and corals that I would enjoy being able to adjust them just purely for aesthetics.

Ok so I need opinions.

1) the four light fixture seems to not have the ability to change the bulbs that are on, it's all on or all off. Which I know isint a necessity but I think I'd like the ability to adjust that.

2) I found 2 retrofits I like: which one??

My favorite is the second one but I wanna see what everyone thinks!
