"No complain."

This certainly worked for my purposes. I have a one gallon tank with a betta. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries.

Fischuel Final Thoughts

"This worked very well."

The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. Portion size can be adjusted easily. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains.

"I highly recommend."

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.

Fischuel Final Thoughts

"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.

"This thing worked great."

The unit arrived partially charged. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit.

"I would recommend it!"

Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. The feeder is also sleek and has a small footprint. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup.

"These feeders are simple."

The first opening was way too small. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. Overall, this product has been great. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole.

"I plan to buy it."

Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. Another big tip for flake food users. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. That number of rotations shows as tiny number in the left-most lower window. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass.

"This is all automatic."

So you don't have to constantly be adding food. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. Overall this is a very good feeder. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have.

Programming was not too difficult, but does need careful reading. I also find it much easier to program. This thing must be running on uranium. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable.

  • SunGrow Squirt Feeder, 17.7” Coral Feeder with Extension Tube, Dosage Tool for Target Feeding for Delicate Species, Spot Remover for Small and Medium Aquariums, 1 Piece
  • ✔ SIMPLE SPOT REMOVER FOR A CRYSTAL CLEAR TANK --- With complete confidence, you can use the SunGrow Aquarium Dropper to perform a quick daily spot removing of your tank in between maintenance and full water changes. The narrow tip of the long-handled tool reaches hidden crevices and underneath the gravel at the bottom of your tank to remove residual food and excess debris.
  • ✔ ACCURATE, EASY TO READ MEASUREMENTS --- The transparent body of the Sea Squirt Feeder is clearly printed with 10mL, 15mL, 20mL and 30mL measurements for easy to read accuracy. Being able to see the amount of liquid in the tube ensures that you know how much you are dispensing and restricts overfeeding.
  • ✔ USE TO REMOVE UNWANTED ANEMONES --- Although many sea anemones are quite a beautiful addition to aquariums, there are some like the Aiptasia and Majano anemones that can become a nuisance. The SunGrow Aquarium Pipette is the perfect tool to apply removal solutions which reduce their spread further.
  • ✔ INCLUDES EXTENSION FOR ADDED LENGTH --- The graduated dropper starts out at 9.8” (25cm) to keep your arms, hands, and sleeves dry while feeding your aquatic pets. An almost 10” (28 cm) extension tube easily slips on for a total length of around 18” (45cm) for clearing those deep, hard to reach areas. Being versatile enough to work in both small and medium-sized tanks is perfect for enthusiasts who have multiple aquariums.
  • ✔ MADE USING HIGH QUALITY, DURABLE MATERIAL --- Made with high quality raw material that is durable, the SunGrow Squirt Feeder is expertly crafted with acrylic. This long-lasting plastic doesn’t get affected easily as glass does and the black rubber suction bulb is very strong yet remains easily compressible.

There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. Another big tip for flake food users. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now.
