Post Light set up, UV lights, Good timer
Hello there!

I am embarking a=on a three month time lapse documenting an indoor decomposition. I am searching for the most effective way to light the aquarium setup. Unfortunately, UV light kills bacteria.
My question comes in three parts
A. Does anyone know if this LED light rig gives off to much UV light? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/6 ... Video.html

B. Is there a suggestion out there on the best timer to turn the lights on/off

C. will flash photography be too inconsistent?

Not sure about the UV rating of that light, but you could always add a UV filter to it.

Flashes can be inconsistent from what I've read form other posts here.
I find LEDs to be pretty reliable personally.

Any easy solution to control your lights and camera would be to use a reef aquarium controller. They are basically little boxes to control lot's of timers and relays...used for monitoring various things and scheduling lights, pumps and heaters, etc...

You could get a reefkeeper + one of these:

and make an adapter cable that goes to your camera's bulb connector to one of the switch ports.

Of course, this is really a job for an Arduino.
