"It's closer to 4."

I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. Portion size can be adjusted easily. I am very happy to own this feeder. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. Easy to setup and ability to set a desired feed schedule. Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding.

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."

It works great and kept our fish live for a month absence. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing. I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think.

"Nice mounting features."

I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole.

"And that's a good thing!"

I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. The unit arrived partially charged.

"Easy to set up."

You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. This certainly worked for my purposes. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup.

"And that's a good thing!"

Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town.

"Absolutely love it."

He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. The unit arrived partially charged. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. It is the quiet feeder I ever have. Don't lose the instructions or you'll go crazy trying to program it.

"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.

I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. Forgetting to feed your fish will not happen again with this Auto Fish Feeder. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. The price was good, and I recommend it! My son loves this automatic fish feeder.

"This thing worked great."

It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. You can also set it to feed at up to 4 times a day. Forgetting to feed your fish will not happen again with this Auto Fish Feeder. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders.

Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip.

"For us it was perfect!"

I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. That number of rotations shows as tiny number in the left-most lower window. Online instructions are not much help. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. There were a few cheaper feeders that I considered. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right.

"Set the time."

On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. All the time and effort I could have saved. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time.

"I would recommend it!"

Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. The feeder is also sleek and has a small footprint. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup.
