"Refilling is very easy."

I have no complaints and fish are happy. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. I even watched them being fed on the home video cameras while I was away. I added a small funnel to catch the food and guide it. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided.

"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.

"Seems to work good."

Product does NOT come with required AA batteries. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. Don't lose the instructions or you'll go crazy trying to program it. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge.

TOPBRY Final Thoughts

"This has been great!"

One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. All the time and effort I could have saved. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. I have a one gallon tank with a betta.

"Recommend!"

It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. I have no complaints and fish are happy. I am not sure if he ever associated the vibration with food. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. Easy to setup and ability to set a desired feed schedule.

"And that's a good thing!"

I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover.

"I have it set on about 1."

I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. Portion size can be adjusted easily. I also find it much easier to program. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl.

  • 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.

"Easy to configure."

Comes on a swivel bracket to accommodate special angles for installation. The unit arrived partially charged. I bought this feeder to use on my betta tank for weeks when I go home from college. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders.

"This is all automatic."

So you don't have to constantly be adding food. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. Overall this is a very good feeder. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have.

"Absolutely love it."

He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. 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 unit arrived partially charged. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. It is the quiet feeder I ever have. Don't lose the instructions or you'll go crazy trying to program it.

  • SunGrow Pleco Fish Wafer Feeder, Automatic Food Release, Easy to Install on Fish Tank, Never Miss Feeding time

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"Refilling is very easy."

Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. Another big tip for flake food users. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all.

The unit arrived partially charged. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit.

"Use small pellets."

Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. I learned this the hard way coming back from a one week vacation. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use. Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in. The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass.

User Ratings: 50 8

SunGrow First Impressions

"Just a great design."

The packaging says not to use rechargeable batteries. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. I like to keep consistency with the tank. Forgetting to feed your fish will not happen again with this Auto Fish Feeder. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it.

  • SunGrow Betta Feeding Ring, 3 Inches, Practical Round Floating Food, Reduces Waste & Maintains Water Quality, Suitable for Flakes & Other Floating Fish Foods, for Guppy, Goldfish and Other Small Fish
  • ✔ ENCOURAGES PICKY EATERS TO EAT MORE --- Some fish are more finicky than others or may be a bit more shy and not want to eat with the other fish. The SunGrow Floating Fish Feeding Ring allows you to feed specialty foods to the pickier fish while sprinkling standard floating fish food to the general population of fish. It won’t take long for your finicky fish to quickly learn that the square fish feeder is where to find their supper.
  • ✔ PREVENTS FISH FROM BEING BULLIES --- A great way to prevent fish in a community tank from being bullies is to use multiple floating feeding rings. Fill one square fish feeder and allow your more aggressive fish to dash over to eat. Once they are occupied, add floating fish food to a second feeding square for the more timid fish. Bullies can’t hog all the rings, so add as many as you feel necessary so all your fish can eat in peace.
  • ✔ REDUCES DEBRIS BY KEEPING FOOD CONTAINED --- By placing your pet fish’s food directly into the feeder square, it inhibits the flakes and pellets from floating into unwanted places such as the filter. A cleaner aquarium filter is far more effective at keeping your tank’s water at a higher quality level and reduces excess debris throughout the tank.
  • ✔ FITS PERFECTLY IN A FISH TANK --- At a convenient size of 4” x 4” (10cm x 10cm), the lightweight Square Feeding Ring for small fish from SunGrow is constructed of safe, high quality black plastic. It comes complete with a matching black suction cup to hold it securely in place. You also have the option of allowing the fish feeder to float freely along the surface of your freshwater tank or saltwater aquarium.
  • ✔ SAVES FISH OWNERS’ TIME AND MONEY --- Effective and creative, the Square Feeding Ring for your neon tetra, guppy, and goldfish is fantastic at saving money on excess food, maintaining high-quality water and reducing filter clogging. Placing your flakes into a specified area means that you can control the dispersal of food and more is eaten and less is wasted. Less stray food and filter clogs allows you to spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying your pet fish.
