"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.

DGZZI First Impressions

"Pretty easy to setup."

The unit arrived partially charged. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. Don't lose the instructions or you'll go crazy trying to program it. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. The unit arrived partially charged. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features.

DGZZI Final Thoughts

"I plan to buy it."

There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. I like to keep consistency with the tank. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results.

"Hope this review helped."

There were a few cheaper feeders that I considered. It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets.

Dbeans Flourithing Final Thoughts

"Product works great."

I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base. It has a button you can press to do a manual feeding. It also allow multiple feeding option and times. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1.

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.

5. DGZZI Aquarium Cone Feeder 4PCS White Fish Tank Red Worm Feeding Cone Cups with Suckers

DGZZI First Impressions

"Easy to configure."

The price was good, and I recommend it! It would probably sell like hot cakes. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. The rechargeable battery makes me feel better about the environment. I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think.

DGZZI Final Thoughts

"Freaking amazing y'all!"

There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. This does everything but fill itself with food. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. All the time and effort I could have saved. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day.

6. MMLUCK Adjustable Automatic Fish Food Feeders Timed Auto Fish Feeding Device Aquarium Fish Tank Pond...

MMLUCK First Impressions

"Fish survived."

Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time. I have used this every day for a year and love it. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box.

  • MMLUCK Adjustable Automatic Fish Food Feeders Timed Auto Fish Feeding Device Aquarium Fish Tank Pond Food Dispenser
  • NTELLIGENT TIMING: When you work, shop or travel, this product can help you feed your favorite fish in the aquarium. Feeding time can be set to once or twice a day, depending on your pet fish's eating habits.
  • LARGE CAPACITY: The timing feeder has a large space for storing fish food, which is suitable for any type of fish food. One fill can feed the fish for a long time, so that your fish can also eat when you are away from home for a long time.
  • GOOD SEALING:The place where fish food is stored is made of high density plastic, which has good sealing performance. If the fish feeder is placed on the fish tank for a long time, the fish food in the fish tank will not be affected by moisture, and it can still be put into the fish tank to feed the fish.
  • LONG WORKING TIME:The fish feeder does not need wires and sockets for power supply. It only needs two batteries to work for a long time. It's very safe for a house where no one lives.
  • SIMPLE INSTALLATION AND OPERATION: The design of timing fish feeder is simple and practical, with clear switch and rotating screw to control food flow, which is very easy for everyone to operate. The timing fish feeder can be installed on all types of fish tanks and has a wide range of applications.

MMLUCK Final Thoughts

"Good price too."

I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. The packaging says not to use rechargeable batteries. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town. I am very happy to own this feeder. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. I purchased this before a month-long vacation.

"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.

"The motor is very quiet."

Another big tip for flake food users. The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. It took a min to figure out the instructions. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. They mostly were checking in to make sure this EHEIM feeder was working.

"Overall, a good product."

Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. Online instructions are not much help. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. I learned this the hard way coming back from a one week vacation.

Easy to setup and ability to set a desired feed schedule. The size of the tank is too small to recommend. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening. I figured too much food was better than too little. He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day.
