lighting timer

Hi everyone, I'm a newbie to saltwater and reef aqarium, i just acquired a 20g fish and reef system recently, there isnt any corals yet, just clown fish and some cleaning crews, but i'm thinking of getting a timer for the light, where would be a good place to get it?

Wal-Mart, Lowes, Home Depot, K-Mart etc... Lamp timers are great for this,,,

Try to find the grounded ones though...

be sure you've got the right lighting for those corals first.

Go to Home Depot and get the digital appliance timer (Intermatic DT-11). It's grounded, heavy duty, and won't lose time like the analog timers usually do. It also has a battery backup for the memory so you don't lose the program when the power goes out. It's $16.97 I think. Lowes also has a digital timer that looks very much like it, and is probably as good, but it's about $22.00
