Not site but you might be able to find a cord with a toggle (on/off) switch.

The ones with toggle on/off buttons is like the most common ones. Those are the ones I usually get and can be usually found in any local hardware stores like Home Depot.

Yes! Most have an on/off toggle for overriding the timer. Both my tanks have them so I don't have to worry about it.

Really?! No blasting sand? Wtf? What kind of Home Depot doesn't have blasting sand. You can use play sand or pool filter sand if you can't find blasting sand. When are you thinking of cycling the tank?

I have a 20H tank ATM, I'm very close to being done the cycle in it now. I'm looking to get all the stuff to work in my 50 first them ill move everything over from the 20 to the 50. I'm thinking about getting a penguin emperor, but I don't know what filtration is best for a 50 because ill be using sand? (I want my tank to have a dark sand+drift wood coming out then some plants) I'm not sure yet though.
