Aquarium Equip G036_R AW Final Thoughts

"These feeders are simple."

I even watched them being fed on the home video cameras while I was away. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. Overall this is a very good feeder. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl.

"Worked for my beta."

I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town. The unit arrived partially charged. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. This thing must be running on uranium. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape.

"Fish survived."

You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. Overall this is a very good feeder.

The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank.

Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. For the price, I do not regret my purchase. I like to keep consistency with the tank. You can also set it to feed at up to 4 times a day. Comes on a swivel bracket to accommodate special angles for installation.

"Seems to work good."

Programming was not too difficult, but does need careful reading. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. Forgetting to feed your fish will not happen again with this Auto Fish Feeder.

You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results.

  • Penn-Plax Pro Balance Vacation Fish Feeder | Slow Release Food That’s Great for Vacays | 1 Block Feeds up to 14 Days | 1 Fish Shaped Block (1 Package)
  • GREAT FOR VACAYS: Worried about finding a fish-sitter as you plan for your next getaway or adventure? Or, whenever or not they’ll overfeed your fish? Fear no more! Our Pro Balance Vacation Fish Feeder Blocks will feed your fish while you’re away. Each block feeds to up 14 days, and each package contains 1 Fish Shaped Block.
  • IDEAL FOR 10 – 15 GALLON TANKS: Our Fish Feeder Blocks work best in aquariums that are between 10 and 15 Gallons in size. One block will last 10 to 14 days, depending on the PH level and water temperature. A minimum water temperature of 72°F (22°C) and PH level of 6.6 to 7.0 is most efficient for the release of food particles.
  • REQUIRES AERATION & CIRCULATION: Within hours, our Feeder Blocks will start to dissolve, releasing nutritious freeze-dried foods while neutralizing your aquarium’s water. In order for this to happen, your tank should have the proper aeration and circulation. Our Feeder Blocks dissolve normally with setups that have an air stone or filter.
  • GIVE IT A TRY BEFORE YOUR TRIP: Just like us, our fish can get picky over their food. As a suggestion, you may want to place 1 Feeder Block in your tank 2 to 3 weeks before your vacation or trip. This way, you’ll see if they like it or not. To take it a step further, you may want to leave the tank alone as you test our Feed Blocks, mimicking the trip.
