"Works as advertised."

Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. Another big tip for flake food users. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries.

Fluval 10786 Final Thoughts

"Operation wise, no flaws."

Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1.

"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.

"Set the time."

On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. All the time and effort I could have saved. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time.

  • ✔ REMOVE AND REPLACE LEAVES IN SECONDS --- Many fish owners and aquarium enthusiasts are aware of the incredible benefits of catappa leaves. Most of them simply toss the leaves into the tank, wait for the nutrients to deplete and then struggle to remove the debris. With the super convenient SunGrow Catappa Leaf Clip, you can remove and replace leaves in seconds.
  • ✔ HELPS PROMOTE HEALTHY, HAPPY FISH --- Adding catappa leaves to your aquarium provides your pet fish with healing minerals, protective shelter and a delicious dietary supplement. These nutritional wonders add beneficial tannins to your water which naturally lowers the pH levels promoting healthier and happier aquatic pets.
  • ✔ MAKES FEEDING TREATS EASIER AND DRIER --- Just like the clear holder makes changing leaves easier, it also makes feeding simpler and keeps you drier! Shrimp, betta and other fish love to nibble on treats such as catappa leaves, dried seaweed and dehydrated vegetable pieces. Now you can feed your pets any of these treats and remove the leftovers without getting your arm or clothing wet.
  • ✔ COMPACT, DISCREET 4” X 2” SIZE --- For minimal distraction from your beautiful underwater environment, the practical leaf clip is compact in size and discreet in color. The black base and transparent clamp only takes up 4” x 2” of space and securely attaches to the wall of your aquarium or fish tank using a reliable suction cup.
  • ✔ MULTIPLE PURPOSES OUTSIDE OF THE TANK --- Not only is the suction cup clamp very useful inside of your aquarium, there are also many uses outside of the tank. At home, suction the cup to your fridge and clip notes for family members. In the office, use it to hang your daily “to-do list”. At school, teachers can use these practical holders to display student artwork.

"Works great now."

I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. I added a small funnel to catch the food and guide it. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable.

Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. I figured too much food was better than too little. Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day.

I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! It would probably sell like hot cakes. The size of the tank is too small to recommend. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch.

Programming was not too difficult, but does need careful reading. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed.
