For example, if three pumps share a 01:00 start time, PUMP 1 will activate at the start time of 01:00; PUMP 2 will activate at 01:05, and so on.

You have pampered your fish and plants, and now it's time for an extended business trip, or an opportunity to pamper yourself with a well-deserved vacation. But what about your aquarium? How can you leave for three days or longer and be sure.
With the wide variety of commercial foods
available, it is sometimes difficult to determine
which type of food to feed your fish. When
choosing a food, the first thing you need to know
is what type of diet is natural to your fish.
Fish need protein, lipids, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Unfortunately few foods contain all or enough of these essential nutrients. Therefore, the best way to ensure all their nutritional prerequisites are met is to give them a varied diet.
