"Thank you."

This will ruin li-ion batteries over time. It works great and kept our fish live for a month absence. It would probably sell like hot cakes. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1. The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly.

Aquarium Choice Final Thoughts

"Works as advertised."

I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. This certainly worked for my purposes. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town.

"Easy to configure."

Comes on a swivel bracket to accommodate special angles for installation. The unit arrived partially charged. I bought this feeder to use on my betta tank for weeks when I go home from college. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders.

"This is all automatic."

So you don't have to constantly be adding food. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. Overall this is a very good feeder. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have.

"No more moisture!"

He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all.

  • SunGrow Feeding Ring Set for Aquarium, One Square and One Round Floating Plate, Fish Food Stays Inside Frame, Easy Feeding, Lower Food Waste, Helps Keep Large Betta Tank Clean, Includes 2 Suction Cups
  • ✔ REDUCES FOOD WASTE AND AVOIDS BULLYING --- Using the SunGrow Fish Feeding Rings is an easy and efficient way to reduce food waste and discourage bullying amongst your fish. Keeping your food in a certain area restricts extra flakes and pellets from scattering about and getting pulled into the water filter. Giving your fish separate feeding spots, bully fish can't hog all the rings and your timid fish can eat in peace.
  • ✔ KEEPS FISH TANKS CLEANER FOR LONGER --- Instead of sprinkling the fish food all across the top of your aquarium, the floating feeder gives food a specific area of its own. By placing food directly into the SunGrow Feeding Rings, there is less loose food roaming around the tank. Fewer pieces of wayward food means a cleaner tank and less maintenance.
  • ✔ DURABLE, ECO FRIENDLY MATERIALS --- All of the materials used in crafting the set of 2 Fish Food Feeders are environmentally friendly and innocuous to your aquatic pets. The black PVC plastic frames and included suction cups are long lasting, durable and odorless. These materials are suitable for both freshwater and saltwater habitats. The Square plate is the bigger one with 4 inch (10 cm) length and the Round plate has 2 inch diameter (5.5 cm), so you can use them according to your need.
  • ✔ PERFECT FOR ALL FLOATING FISH FOOD --- The pair of SunGrow Feeding Rings are specially designed for floating food only, as sinking food will not stay within the frames for very long. All sorts of floating foods can be put into the floating feeders where it will remain until your fish are ready to eat. Flakes, granulars, pellets and leaves are just a few of the many suitable fish foods.
  • ✔ GREAT FOR MANY SPECIES OF AQUATIC PETS --- Goldfish, guppies, catfish, tetras, mollies and danios are just a few of the many fish that will eat from the convenient fish food feeders. In particular, territorial fish such as bettas and cichlids benefit from having their own area to feed from. Other aquatic pets like water turtles, shrimp, crayfish and African dwarf frogs can also use the floating feeder rings.

"Here are some pictures."

I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. It also allow multiple feeding option and times. You can also set it to feed at up to 4 times a day. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening.

Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made.

"Love this feeder."

I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. Programming was not too difficult, but does need careful reading. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. The other way you can mount this is with a stick on mount. Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand.

"This is a 24-hour clock."

Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. It is the quiet feeder I ever have. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. I have used this every day for a year and love it. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations.

"Completely unnecessary."

It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable.

Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable. Its alot more simple than how it reads. I figured too much food was better than too little. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder.

May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. It also allow multiple feeding option and times. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two.

I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time.

"Fish survived."

That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. I am not sure if he ever associated the vibration with food. There were a few cheaper feeders that I considered. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. It has a button you can press to do a manual feeding.

"Refilling is very easy."

Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. Another big tip for flake food users. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all.

"Set up a breeze."

This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! It has a button you can press to do a manual feeding. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off.

"Period I think."

You can also set it to feed at up to 4 times a day. The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish.
