what kind if light timer do you guys use? I used the marineland light timer from petsmart. it didnt work for me. theres also the zoomed one and it pretty much works the same. my experience with it is, I pressed down the dials in for the light to come on, but it doesnt. help?

I got one from Walmart for 5 bucks and it looks the exact same as a zoomed one they sell at petco for 15 bucks. It works great
