How would I use outlet timers to set times during the day for each independent
bulb to turn on if there is only one wire on the fixture below? Say I wanted to
run the front bulb for two hours, then both for 3, and then the back for 2... are
there 2 separate wires/plugs for each bulb? Because if there are, that is all
you have to tell me and I'm good! :proud:

Depends on your comfort level with opening the case up and rewiring some things. If its 2 seperate ballasts (which i doubt) it would be easier. It will definitely be an intermediate DIY project at least.

My 24" version of this fixture does have two cords. The fan (louder that I would like) is activated with the front lamp.

OH, YAY!! I'm so glad it has two cords, I wouldn't want to accidentally break
anything trying to do it myself! Thanks so much! :icon_mrgr :bounce:
