I may need some more info. When you say light control, do you mean a day night function to control things? Perhaps an indicator light to show when power is on?
Please pardon the questions. I just want to make sure what is wanted.

EDIT: I just noticed that you may be in Italy? A note of what power supply (110 or 220volt 50hz or 60) will help.

You can easily pull this off with an Arduino. Google "arduino relay timer" and you will find lots of examples

very easy, get a sheet of wood and drill the holes for the timers and sockets.
attach everything and wire it according to the schematic that is provided with the timers and sockets, hook it up to a power outlet near your tank and done.

They don't sell timers in Italy?
