I use two (outdoor) timers that I bought at Lowes. One runs the actinics for 12 hours/day, the other runs the 10k for 10/hours/day.
So my light schedule is :
11 am - noon Actinic only
Noon - 10 pm Actininc and MH
10 pm - 11 pm Actinic only
The moon light LEDs run 24/7

The outdoor timers have a plastic flip up cover.

Me too, they are water/weather proof. I decided to use them under my tank for the lights and my fan.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Good point. There was nothing touching them, but my daughter has two cats that have been know to lay back there. I moved it up and out of the way.
