What is a good timer to get?

I bought the coralife digital timer and it has such a freaking stupid design, that I'm returning it straight to petsmart. Anyone have a timer that allows me to program the actinic lights to go on first, then the 10,000ks?

I have alot of tanks and I use the walmart $5 timers for each plug. It's the only way I've found to be able to multi stage my lighting.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Check out the lighting section, they should have several. I have the ones where you push in the little pegs, they also have digital ones for like $9 each. I think they may be walmart brand, their "home living" or something like that
