Marine Depot sells a dual light timer as do some LFS's. It's made by Current. It's hard to read the website on it, but it looks like it says "current-usa.com"

Sparkling gouramis color-up beautifully in a planted tank. They usually are extremely drab in the shops. Mine looked very similar to Dwarf Gouramis in color.

My tank is a 60 Tall and it is 24" tall, 30" long and 18" wide. Better check your tank measurements. The 4" makes a big difference with the PAR level.
