"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.

Comes on a swivel bracket to accommodate special angles for installation. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. Comes on a swivel bracket to accommodate special angles for installation. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose.

"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.

"This is a 24-hour clock."

Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. It is the quiet feeder I ever have. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. I have used this every day for a year and love it. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations.

WEAVERBIRD Final Thoughts

"Completely unnecessary."

It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable.

I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank.

"No complain."

I would rather overbuy than underbuy. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose.

"No issues."

They mostly were checking in to make sure this EHEIM feeder was working. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. That number of rotations shows as tiny number in the left-most lower window. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time.

"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.

"Easy assembly."

Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. I even watched them being fed on the home video cameras while I was away. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. This does everything but fill itself with food. Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food.
