Yup, the time you turn on the solenoid will be dictated by how well your co2 diffusion method can get the saturation up to snuff, so by time your lights kick in plants are ready to do it`s thing.

So i went to walmart just to look at timers and reading the description this one says its not for aquarium use. does anyone know why its not rated for aquarium use? or is it just to scare people for the fun of it?

^ Dude, that a nice find! I might pick that up, the dollarama timers I have are pretty cheaply made. I got a 300 Co2 dollar system controlled by a 2 dollar timer.

Just buy a new battery cause the ones that come with it are dead.
