"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.

boxtech Final Thoughts

"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.

"Recommend!"

Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. Another big tip for flake food users. There were a few cheaper feeders that I considered. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. This certainly worked for my purposes. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries.

"Great for the price."

This certainly worked for my purposes. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have.

"For us it was perfect!"

The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. The price was good, and I recommend it! The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. I purchased this before a month-long vacation. This fish feeder is very configurable and reliable. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable.

"Very handy gadget!"

It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. Another big tip for flake food users. Online instructions are not much help. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. Its alot more simple than how it reads. The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results.

"Love this feeder."

Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. I also find it much easier to program. Its alot more simple than how it reads. I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag.

Penn-Plax ABCD Final Thoughts

"Operation wise, no flaws."

Portion size can be adjusted easily. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time.

"This worked very well."

This thing must be running on uranium. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. The unit arrived partially charged. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. Its alot more simple than how it reads. The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets.

"A VERY good value."

The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting.

"Easy to configure."

Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed.

"This is a 24-hour clock."

I can leave town and not worry about the fish. All the time and effort I could have saved. I have a one gallon tank with a betta. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1. The feeder is also sleek and has a small footprint. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made.

"I was gone for 12 days."

The rechargeable battery makes me feel better about the environment. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. For the price, I do not regret my purchase. It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right. Online instructions are not much help. You can also set it to feed at up to 4 times a day.

"Works as advertised."

That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. Comes on a swivel bracket to accommodate special angles for installation. Portion size can be adjusted easily.

"Highly recommend it!"

I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. I added a small funnel to catch the food and guide it. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium.

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.
