I'm guessing 1,3,5 and 2,4,6.

One switch is outer 2 and the other is the middle 4.

Jnaz is right.

The switches are in the back left corner. The left one controls the outer two and the right one control the middle four.

Confirmed.

If your fixture didn't come with two plugs, it's very easy to add a second one if you want them on separate timers. .

thanks guys

i have a tek 4 bulb right now but as i will be upgrading to a 75 gallon the 6 bulb will obviously give me more coverage and i wanted similar control to the 4 bulb.. so that settles it then, i'll be getting the six bulb and it will of course have two timers so i can be all cool and say i've got a early morning, mid morning, mid day, evening and night lighting modes

OH and i will of course DIY some SMD sitcky led's to have a night light (hence the morning and night lighting modes)
