"It s working out great."

I also find it much easier to program. I have a one gallon tank with a betta. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me.

Kent Marine 100100856 Final Thoughts

"Not anymore."

Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. Its alot more simple than how it reads. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish.

"Really good buy."

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.

"Hope this review helped."

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.

"Product works great."

I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base. It has a button you can press to do a manual feeding. It also allow multiple feeding option and times. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1.

Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. There were a few cheaper feeders that I considered.

"Works great."

There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food.

"This thing worked great."

The unit arrived partially charged. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit.

"I would recommend it!"

Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. The feeder is also sleek and has a small footprint. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup.

"Best thing I ever bought."

I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. The unit arrived partially charged. He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. I have used this every day for a year and love it. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up.

"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.
