I bought a hanging kit for aquariums for like 45. Do you have timers on yours? And have you had any problems on the light with the timers

$45. for a light hanger is insane
I used a hanging plant hanger $4.99 serves it's purpose and I have used 1 light over a 40b the same light is over my 90g now it covers everything but I want to add a second anyway

The standard timers you see at home depot, walmart, and lowes will work fine. You will need 2 of them If you want to turn the blues and whites off and on at different times.

If you don't mind spending extra you can get one with a built in timer

ID:	230617 that's what I used for my hanging kit since I didn't want to drill any holes in any walls. Thanks everyone for all the advice. Just purchased the tt-al16. We will see how it goes
