"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. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. For the price, I do not regret my purchase. Programming was not too difficult, but does need careful reading.

"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.

"I plan to buy it."

This thing must be running on uranium. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. Online instructions are not much help. It also allow multiple feeding option and times. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish.

"Easy to set up."

You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. This certainly worked for my purposes. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup.

The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. Its alot more simple than how it reads. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. There were a few cheaper feeders that I considered.

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.

"Just like life I guess."

There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. Overall this is a very good feeder. This does everything but fill itself with food. The first opening was way too small. The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries.

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.
