Timer and power strip

All the light(~25 tanks) in the fish lab I work in are on a air
conditioner timer. The free standing tanks that aren't wired to the timed
strips are on standaerd timers from the hardware store.  

At home I have all my aqueriums on timers.  I have a dresser that has
multiple tanks on it and they are all on the same timer.  it has 1
1 2-bulb florescent strip and two seventy watt incandescent light attached
to it.  It has worked fine for a year and a half.
