    I picked up a surge protector with a remote control today. Now, I can turn the lights off on the 125, 20 and 5 from my bed :)

    Cool! That's a really neat idea :) Beats having to get up and turn the lights off when your done watching the fish.
    Where did you find it?

    It's nice that there are 2 full time plugs too, so they all aren't on the remote.

    The one light on the 125 doesn't have a switch, so I have to plug and unplug it to turn it on and off. Well NO MORE! I knew there was a better way :)

    Why on earth would any company make a light with no switch??


    ... Unless of course, they ALSO sell timers? LOL

    Neat idea! I might have to look into this for other things...

    all my tanks are on their own surge strips with a timer for the light. Most also have a small UPS for the air pump as well.

    you can also get single plug adapters to make anything remote controlled.

    All lights Ive bought dont have switches... Shows how third world rubbish kicks you hard.

    I put switches on all of them myself

    That is very industrious of you!! I need one of you around. I fall asleep watching my fish in the bedroom. :rolleyes:
    I don't know if a remote would help me. 1) I would lose it just like I lose my TV remote control constantly and 2) I would probably fall asleep before I hit the off switch. LOL :;cr

    But, in all actuallity that is a great idea, and Home Depot. I'll have to keep my eye out for that. :;wk
