"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.

"That did it."

Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable. Its alot more simple than how it reads. I figured too much food was better than too little. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder.

Vaskey Final Thoughts

"This thing worked great."

The size of the tank is too small to recommend. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. It took a min to figure out the instructions. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right. I would rather overbuy than underbuy.

"Best thing I ever bought."

You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. I also find it much easier to program. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. Portion size can be adjusted easily. This does everything but fill itself with food. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank.

Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. Overall, this product has been great.

"Right above him."

I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. I have no complaints and fish are happy. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. Online instructions are not much help. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time.

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.

I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! The size of the tank is too small to recommend. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up.

  • Penn-Plax Pro Balance Vacation Fish Feeder – Slow Release Food That’s Great for Weekend Vacays: 1 Block Feeds up to 3 Days (4 Blocks per Package) – Safe for Freshwater & Saltwater Tanks
  • GREAT FOR WEEKEND VACAYS: Worried about finding a fish-sitter as you plan for your next weekend getaway or adventure? Or, whenever or not they’ll overfeed your fish? Fear no more! Our Pro Balance Vacation Fish Feeder Blocks will feed your fish while you’re away. Each block feeds to up 3 days, and each package contains 4 Starfish Shaped Blocks.
  • IDEAL FOR 10 – 15 GALLON TANKS: Our Fish Feeder Blocks work best in aquariums that are between 10 and 15 Gallons in size. One block will last 3 to 4 days depending on the PH level and water temperature. A minimum water temperature of 72°F (22°C) and PH level of 6.6 to 7.0 is most efficient for the release of food particles.
  • REQUIRES AERATION & CIRCULATION: Within hours, our Feeder Blocks will start to dissolve, releasing nutritious freeze-dried foods while neutralizing your aquarium’s water. In order for this to happen, your tank should have the proper aeration and circulation. Our Feeder Blocks dissolve normally with setups that have an air stone or filter.
  • GIVE IT A TRY BEFORE YOUR TRIP: Just like us, our fish can get picky over their food. As a suggestion, you may want to place 1 Feeder Block in your tank a week before your vacation or trip. This way, you’ll see if they like it or not. To take it a step further, you may want to leave the tank alone as you test our Feed Blocks, mimicking the trip.
  • INGREDIENTS: Calcium Sulfate, Freeze-Dried Tubifex Worm, Freeze-Dried Bloodworm, Freeze-Dried Daphnia, Freeze-Dried White Shrimp, Thiamine Mononitrate (Source of Vitamin B1), and Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Source of Vitamin B6).
