Since I don't have one, I'm not familiar/w the aquarium timers but I remember seeing one(a Zoo Med I think) which had more
than one plug in. The more heavy duty one is the more juice it will use in addition to the lights etc which are in it's plug-ins.
If you check the total watts/amps of your lights against what is written on the unit and it's not more than it's rated at, then
Loew's has a three plug adapter for regular light plug-ins so you can run three things on each hole/socket.
I use one of these but my tank is only a ten/w the needs of a ten g tank in Watts so check both the timer and the adapter
for use limits first.
But no doubt someone will come right behind me(I hope) and show you a link to one they use which you can put
8 plugs into.
