"I plan to buy it."

One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder. Its alot more simple than how it reads. I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries.

Barkmew Final Thoughts

"Product works."

Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. The feeder is also sleek and has a small footprint. I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable.

"Overall, a good product."

This certainly worked for my purposes. This does everything but fill itself with food. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. This thing must be running on uranium. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. This thing must be running on uranium.

NICREW N0673A Final Thoughts

"It still works just fine."

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.

"This thing worked great."

The unit arrived partially charged. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit.

Penn-Plax Final Thoughts

"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.

"Great for the price."

The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. Its alot more simple than how it reads. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results.

Nutrafin A7531 Final Thoughts

"Very quiet in operation."

He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. I am not sure if he ever associated the vibration with food. The unit arrived partially charged. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish.

"Set the time."

The price was good, and I recommend it! For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. I added a small funnel to catch the food and guide it. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1.

"Hope this review helped."

You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl.

"Absolutely love it."

I figured too much food was better than too little. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. Overall, this product has been great. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine.

"Problem solved!"

Overall, this product has been great. This does everything but fill itself with food. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. It would probably sell like hot cakes.

"Love this feeder."

Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. I bought this feeder to use on my betta tank for weeks when I go home from college. Programming was not too difficult, but does need careful reading. I also find it much easier to program. This thing must be running on uranium. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable.

I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. It would probably sell like hot cakes. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. I like to keep consistency with the tank. The other way you can mount this is with a stick on mount.

"Good price too."

There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. The first opening was way too small. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. The size of the tank is too small to recommend. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base.

And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. It has a button you can press to do a manual feeding. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting.
