"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 hope this helps."

I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base. Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding.

"Hope this review helped."

The price was good, and I recommend it! For the price, I do not regret my purchase. I bought this feeder to use on my betta tank for weeks when I go home from college. The first opening was way too small. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. Portion size can be adjusted easily.

"This is a great feeder."

Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. The unit arrived partially charged. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape.

"Easy to program."

Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. It would probably sell like hot cakes. I learned this the hard way coming back from a one week vacation. I am very happy to own this feeder. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine.

"I hope this helps."

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. The unit arrived partially charged.

"This feeder is awesome."

I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. Programming was not too difficult, but does need careful reading. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. The packaging says not to use rechargeable batteries. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium.

"Use small pellets."

It would probably sell like hot cakes. The rechargeable battery makes me feel better about the environment. You can also set it to feed at up to 4 times a day. I have a one gallon tank with a betta. Comes on a swivel bracket to accommodate special angles for installation. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose.

That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two.

I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. This fish feeder is very configurable and reliable. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. This thing must be running on uranium. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone.

This thing must be running on uranium. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. The unit arrived partially charged. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. Its alot more simple than how it reads. The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets.

"A VERY good value."

The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting.

"For us it was perfect!"

I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. That number of rotations shows as tiny number in the left-most lower window. Online instructions are not much help. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. There were a few cheaper feeders that I considered. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right.
