"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.

hygger Final Thoughts

"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.

Senzeal SZLUS-0431 Final Thoughts

"Very pleased."

I have a one gallon tank with a betta. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time. It would probably sell like hot cakes. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well.

Texas Hunter Products Final Thoughts

"This is a 24-hour clock."

Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. That number of rotations shows as tiny number in the left-most lower window. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. The feeder is also sleek and has a small footprint. It works great and kept our fish live for a month absence.

TOPBRY Final Thoughts

"It still works just fine."

I have used this every day for a year and love it. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. Overall, this product has been great. Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting.

The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. They mostly were checking in to make sure this EHEIM feeder was working. 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.

There were a few cheaper feeders that I considered. It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets.
