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.

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.

"This thing worked great."

I am not sure if he ever associated the vibration with food. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine. I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need.

"This feeder is awesome."

The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I am very happy to own this feeder. Overall this is a very good feeder. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. The size of the tank is too small to recommend. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip.

"This thing worked great."

Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. I figured too much food was better than too little. The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made.

"Love this feeder."

They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base. Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use.

"Nice mounting features."

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. It took a min to figure out the instructions. Forgetting to feed your fish will not happen again with this Auto Fish Feeder. It would probably sell like hot cakes. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine.

"Good luck."

It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. Another big tip for flake food users. Its alot more simple than how it reads. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding.

It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great.

"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.

Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. I bought this feeder to use on my betta tank for weeks when I go home from college. 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. I figured too much food was better than too little.

Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it.
