    timers

    I would like to stream line my biocube opperation. I have basic electronic timers but, I would like to get quality components I could trus.

    What timers do you recommend?

    Could I achieve a sunrise/sunset scenario with multiple timers
    timers or should I get a all in one component?

    What timers do you use on differnt equipment i.e. skimmer, lights, and wave maker.

    Neptune Apex, I use my 1 apex for my skimmer, wave makers, return pump, heaters and I have a Bluefish for my lights separately.

    Apex for me for everything except for display tank lights. My 3 lights have timers and I run a sunrise to sunset from East to West over my tank with them.
    Don't look here for a comment.

    With the timers are the lights ramping up and down as they come on or, just switching between the banks with overlap timing?

    His and mine actually increase intensity, something that cannot be done with Walmart outlet timers.
