"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.

"Recommend!"

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. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. It has a button you can press to do a manual feeding.

"But I love it."

It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. It works great and kept our fish live for a month absence. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. I have used this every day for a year and love it. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium.

"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.

"Not anymore."

Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. Its alot more simple than how it reads. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish.

"Great auto feeder."

The size of the tank is too small to recommend. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed.

"Works great."

Portion size can be adjusted easily. It took a min to figure out the instructions. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. Its alot more simple than how it reads. Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up.

"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.

"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.

Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. It has a button you can press to do a manual feeding. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed.

"I plan to buy it."

Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. Another big tip for flake food users. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. That number of rotations shows as tiny number in the left-most lower window. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass.

This certainly worked for my purposes. I have a one gallon tank with a betta. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries.

The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. Portion size can be adjusted easily. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains.

  • 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.
