"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.

It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. I have a one gallon tank with a betta. He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day.

"Product works great."

The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. Online instructions are not much help. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. I can leave town and not worry about the fish.

"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.

"Shame as a great idea."

For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets. This fish feeder is really well made! I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time.

"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.

That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. It took a min to figure out the instructions. Forgetting to feed your fish will not happen again with this Auto Fish Feeder. It would probably sell like hot cakes. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine.

I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. This fish feeder is very configurable and reliable. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. This thing must be running on uranium. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone.
