Fish Mate 207 First Impressions

"Worked great!"

The size of the tank is too small to recommend. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. The other way you can mount this is with a stick on mount. The unit arrived partially charged.

Fish Mate 207 Final Thoughts

"That was quick."

The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. I added a small funnel to catch the food and guide it. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole.

"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.

Fish Mate 348 Final Thoughts

"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.

Fish Mate 211 Final Thoughts

"Right above him."

I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. I have no complaints and fish are happy. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. Online instructions are not much help. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time.

"This works perfect!"

The feeder is also sleek and has a small footprint. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws.

"Shame as a great idea."

I also find it much easier to program. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. I learned this the hard way coming back from a one week vacation. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders.

"The motor is very quiet."

Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. I have used this every day for a year and love it. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. All the time and effort I could have saved.
