I don't know where to get them other than in California, but we have an
electronics store called Fry's Electronics. I have seen some pretty
sophisticated timers there. There was one that let you program in the
location in degrees latitude and it would adjust the on/off period every
day so that the lights come on at the same time relative to the
sunrise/sunset at that latitude. So, if you have fish and plants from
Central America you could program it for 13 degrees north latitude and
set it for today's sunrise/sunset times. Your lights would then track
the sunrise/sunset times that occur in Honduras.
Next time I'm at Fry's I'll get a make and model number.
