Given the budget constraint, why not buy a decent reactor from
Sandpoint, etc and a solenoid valve? You could set your regulator
(I hope it is an accurate needle valve type) for a very safe, low
bubble rate that only runs during the day based upon a timer.
(I only recommended the Sandpoint because I like mine and
have no experience with others.)
I would strongly recommend you forget the budget. You are
only about $300 away from a fully auto system.
