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.

Fish Mate 348 First Impressions

"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.

Fish Mate 211 First Impressions

"Right above him."

Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. Overall, this product has been great. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base. Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine.

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.

"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.

POPETPOP Final Thoughts

"Really good buy."

I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up.

"These feeders are simple."

The packaging says not to use rechargeable batteries. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have.

  • 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.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"Absolutely love it."

The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. I have used this every day for a year and love it.

"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.

"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.

The price was good, and I recommend it! For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. I added a small funnel to catch the food and guide it. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1.

You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl.

Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made.

I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. Programming was not too difficult, but does need careful reading. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. The other way you can mount this is with a stick on mount. Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand.
