when on a timer powerstrip?

I have a venturi pump on a CO2 bio system that doesn't seem to want to start up in the morning. It is on same daytime power bar as my light. When I get home if I unplug and plug it back in, it starts fine.

id try JUST hooking up the pump to the timer. it might be possible its just too much for the one timer.

id get a second elcheapo timer just to see if thats it, if itll start on its own that way

Red Sea?

Those little pumps are prone to sticking as they are so tiny. You might try the smallest maxi jet. They have a spot for the tubing as well.

Ok, I might try both those ideas. Or just get a new diffusing method, but if not powered, I won't be able to have it on a day/night cycle.

A guy on another forum doesn't think its a big deal to keep it running 24/7, says his oxygen levels aren't affected enough at night and his fish are fine. I don't have fish yet but want everything set up right when I do get them
