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.
