"Very quiet."

I can leave town and not worry about the fish. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. It works great and kept our fish live for a month absence. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish.

"Just a great design."

The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries. I have a one gallon tank with a betta. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine.

"It s working out great."

May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. It also allow multiple feeding option and times. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two.

"These feeders are simple."

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. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it.

"Hope this review helped."

The price was good, and I recommend it! For the price, I do not regret my purchase. I bought this feeder to use on my betta tank for weeks when I go home from college. The first opening was way too small. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. Portion size can be adjusted easily.

"This is a great feeder."

I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening. I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better.

"It only supports 2."

The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. I have no complaints and fish are happy. Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable.

"Nice product, works well."

I am not sure if he ever associated the vibration with food. They mostly were checking in to make sure this EHEIM feeder was working. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. That number of rotations shows as tiny number in the left-most lower window.

"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.
