"Great auto feeder."

The size of the tank is too small to recommend. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed.

"Works great."

Portion size can be adjusted easily. It took a min to figure out the instructions. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. Its alot more simple than how it reads. Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up.

"Nice mounting features."

I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. Easy to setup and ability to set a desired feed schedule. This certainly worked for my purposes. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine.

"I have it set on about 1."

This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. Overall, this product has been great. I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder.

3. EHEIM TWIN Automatic Feeder, Battery Operation

Eheim 3582000 First Impressions

"Great auto feeder."

Easy to setup and ability to set a desired feed schedule. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium.

  • Two separate food chambers for granulate, sticks, pellets, or flakes
  • can be programmed individually
  • Aerated chambers to ensure your food stays dry
  • Random function for natural feeding conditions

"Shame as a great idea."

For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets. This fish feeder is really well made! I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time.

"Fish survived."

Forgetting to feed your fish will not happen again with this Auto Fish Feeder. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use. That number of rotations shows as tiny number in the left-most lower window. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town. This fish feeder is really well made!

"I would recommend it!"

3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank.

"Absolutely love it."

I figured too much food was better than too little. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. Overall, this product has been great. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine.

"Problem solved!"

Overall, this product has been great. This does everything but fill itself with food. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. It would probably sell like hot cakes.

Overall this is a very good feeder. It would probably sell like hot cakes. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. I also find it much easier to program. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all.

"It s working out great."

The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. The other way you can mount this is with a stick on mount. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. I am very happy to own this feeder.

It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. I have no complaints and fish are happy. I am not sure if he ever associated the vibration with food.

"And that's a good thing!"

I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover.

"Works as advertised."

I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. This certainly worked for my purposes. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate.
