sunrise/sunset timer?
 
Does anyone know of an affordable or DIY led sunrise/sunset controller? (aka use pwm to slowly turn up the lights over a 20 min ish period and revers for the evening?)

It would be nice to have it a little more natural for the fish and i'm guessing it would help spawning cycles aswell.

DIM4. Around $80-90. You would be able to set the sunset and sunrise even more than 20 minutes. Checkout ledgroupbuy.com

Thanks summer! Do you have to use it with their specific drivers or could i wire it up to some 12v led strip lights?

A bit cheaper. But it looks like they all need specific drivers that are not 12v. May need to redo it all if I do it
