"Buy another product."

There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. Another big tip for flake food users.

"Overall, a good product."

Overall this is a very good feeder. It would probably sell like hot cakes. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. I also find it much easier to program. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all.

"It s working out great."

The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. The other way you can mount this is with a stick on mount. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. I am very happy to own this feeder.

"Pretty easy to setup."

Online instructions are not much help. The rechargeable battery makes me feel better about the environment. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. It is the quiet feeder I ever have. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me.

"What a great product!"

This fish feeder is really well made! It also allow multiple feeding option and times. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. This certainly worked for my purposes. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all.

"Love this feeder."

Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. I also find it much easier to program. Its alot more simple than how it reads. I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag.

Penn-Plax ABCD Final Thoughts

"Operation wise, no flaws."

Portion size can be adjusted easily. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time.

"Easy to configure."

Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. 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. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed.

"This is a 24-hour clock."

I can leave town and not worry about the fish. All the time and effort I could have saved. I have a one gallon tank with a betta. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1. The feeder is also sleek and has a small footprint. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made.

"Love this feeder."

You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. The unit arrived partially charged. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. Forgetting to feed your fish will not happen again with this Auto Fish Feeder. Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding.

It is the quiet feeder I ever have. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. Online instructions are not much help. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole.

  • Catappa Leaf Clip (1 pc), Compact 4” x 2” Veggie or Catappa Leaf Holder, Secure, Removable Suction Cup Base with Clear Clamp, Improve Health of Betta, Goldfish, Guppy, Shrimp and Freshwater Fish
  • ✔ 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.
