Do you manually do that, or do you have a very advanced timer.

I found the same thing with the digital timers. Basically one on/off cycle. The analog rotary style ones can turn on/off as many times during the day.

I somehow broke my analog rotary timer. So when I bought a new timer it was two digitals ones for $7.

If the timer only allows for one on/off period then I would skip the morning session (*should be getting ready for school) and have it come on the the afternoon only for 6-8 hours.

I have two timers similar to the one pictured.
That Woods timer looks like a good deal. 20 programmable on/off cycles per day? Get out of here!
Question: is the Woods timer 2 or 3 prong?

Yah I'm very happy with it, 20 yes, remember when I got it? Set it for 10 on/off cycles during the after noon, my gf thought the tank was haunted that model is a single out 2 prong, i have a splitter on it running 3 tanks/4 lights. The 3 prong model has 2 outs and that's been running 2 co2 solenoids flawlessly. Great for split photos/gas periods.
