    i used the similar mechanism in the past, but used a timer-outlet from ikea with the turning timing wheel instead of clocks (see the picture). As a bonus i had a timer-controlled outlet for air pump. But it was not pocket-sized ;) It was not invented by me, it has an author in internet.

    How much does it cost for the materials

    Any Suggestions on how to mount this?

    You could use double sided tape

    This is great. Simple. Cheap. Effective. Handy. I love it!

    Haha thanks a lot it's so much smaller than the other ones on the web lol and don't forget to vote on the Pocket sized contest

    Oh yeah, I voted. Best of luck! (although i wouldn't mind winning myself :P)

    very cool idea, I have killed too many fish by being my forgettful self!
