"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.

"Highly recommend it!"

The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine.

"Great for the price."

May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. I figured too much food was better than too little. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day.

"And that's a good thing!"

I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base. The unit arrived partially charged. Overall, this product has been great.

"Overall, a good product."

The packaging says not to use rechargeable batteries. The first opening was way too small. This thing must be running on uranium. I figured too much food was better than too little. The first opening was way too small. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease.

Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. The rechargeable battery makes me feel better about the environment. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. This fish feeder is very configurable and reliable. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable.

"Works GREAT."

On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. I purchased this before a month-long vacation. Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. All the time and effort I could have saved.

"I have it set on about 1."

I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. Another big tip for flake food users. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. Online instructions are not much help. It took a min to figure out the instructions. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time.

"It meets my expectation."

I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. I added a small funnel to catch the food and guide it. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. I have no complaints and fish are happy. For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets.

"Best thing I ever bought."

I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. The unit arrived partially charged. He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. I have used this every day for a year and love it. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up.

"Just like life I guess."

There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. Overall this is a very good feeder. This does everything but fill itself with food. The first opening was way too small. The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries.

The first opening was way too small. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. The price was good, and I recommend it! Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover. I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip.

I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1. Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. I can leave town and not worry about the fish.
