"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.

hygger Final Thoughts

"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.

"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.

"Nice mounting features."

It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. Don't lose the instructions or you'll go crazy trying to program it. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries.

"Worked great!"

Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. Portion size can be adjusted easily. 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.

Nutrafin A7531 First Impressions

"Great for the price."

The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. Its alot more simple than how it reads. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results.

"Very quiet in operation."

He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. I am not sure if he ever associated the vibration with food. The unit arrived partially charged. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish.

"Shame as a great idea."

It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. 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. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. It has a button you can press to do a manual feeding.

"That did it."

I bought this feeder to use on my betta tank for weeks when I go home from college. You can also set it to feed at up to 4 times a day. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine.

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.

They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. It is the quiet feeder I ever have. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains.

This certainly worked for my purposes. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time. I added a small funnel to catch the food and guide it.

The price was good, and I recommend it! It would probably sell like hot cakes. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. The rechargeable battery makes me feel better about the environment.

He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day.
