"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.

"For us it was perfect!"

The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. The other way you can mount this is with a stick on mount. This fish feeder is really well made! That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. I have used this every day for a year and love it. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. Its alot more simple than how it reads.

I also find it much easier to program. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. I purchased this before a month-long vacation. Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding.

"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.

"Not anymore."

I have no complaints and fish are happy. I also find it much easier to program. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. The price was good, and I recommend it! Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about.

"Seems to work good."

So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. This fish feeder is really well made! Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in.

I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. It works great and kept our fish live for a month absence. All the time and effort I could have saved.

"Set up a breeze."

This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! It has a button you can press to do a manual feeding. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off.

"Period I think."

You can also set it to feed at up to 4 times a day. The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish.
