Programmable light for 5.5 gallon tank?

Does anybody make a programmable light that would fit a standard 5.5 gallon tank? I want to be able to adjust the output and have a programmable daily light cycle. Ecoxotic had a 12-inch E-series, but I think it has been discontinued.

Thanks!

Thanks, Nils. I'm using a 12-inch Stingray and like it a lot. My current system is to have another lamp on for 15 minutes before and after the Stingray to approximate sunrise and sunset. It works, but it would be so convenient to have an actual 12-hour cycle run automatically by the fixture.

What you could do is get a FInnex 24/7 and set it a little higher, because it would be too big to fit on the 5.5 but if you et it up a bit higher (idk how) you'd be able to use the 24 hour cycle.
