"Very quiet in operation."

It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. I learned this the hard way coming back from a one week vacation.

"Highly recommended."

I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. The size of the tank is too small to recommend. Overall, this product has been great. For the price, I do not regret my purchase. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. I have a one gallon tank with a betta.

"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.

"So far so good!"

This does everything but fill itself with food. The first opening was way too small. They mostly were checking in to make sure this EHEIM feeder was working. I figured too much food was better than too little. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder.

May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. Overall this is a very good feeder. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries.

"That was quick."

It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. The other way you can mount this is with a stick on mount. This fish feeder is very configurable and reliable. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries.

"Think outside the box."

My son loves this automatic fish feeder. This does everything but fill itself with food. Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine. Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. The rechargeable battery makes me feel better about the environment.

"Fish survived."

Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time. I have used this every day for a year and love it. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box.

  • MMLUCK Adjustable Automatic Fish Food Feeders Timed Auto Fish Feeding Device Aquarium Fish Tank Pond Food Dispenser
  • NTELLIGENT TIMING: When you work, shop or travel, this product can help you feed your favorite fish in the aquarium. Feeding time can be set to once or twice a day, depending on your pet fish's eating habits.
  • LARGE CAPACITY: The timing feeder has a large space for storing fish food, which is suitable for any type of fish food. One fill can feed the fish for a long time, so that your fish can also eat when you are away from home for a long time.
  • GOOD SEALING:The place where fish food is stored is made of high density plastic, which has good sealing performance. If the fish feeder is placed on the fish tank for a long time, the fish food in the fish tank will not be affected by moisture, and it can still be put into the fish tank to feed the fish.
  • LONG WORKING TIME:The fish feeder does not need wires and sockets for power supply. It only needs two batteries to work for a long time. It's very safe for a house where no one lives.
  • SIMPLE INSTALLATION AND OPERATION: The design of timing fish feeder is simple and practical, with clear switch and rotating screw to control food flow, which is very easy for everyone to operate. The timing fish feeder can be installed on all types of fish tanks and has a wide range of applications.

"Good price too."

I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. The packaging says not to use rechargeable batteries. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town. I am very happy to own this feeder. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. I purchased this before a month-long vacation.
