There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. I also find it much easier to program. The price was good, and I recommend it! Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. Overall this is a very good feeder.

"This works perfect!"

And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. The unit arrived partially charged.

"I plan to buy it."

This thing must be running on uranium. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. Online instructions are not much help. It also allow multiple feeding option and times. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish.

"And that's a good thing!"

I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base. The unit arrived partially charged. Overall, this product has been great.

"Set the time."

On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. All the time and effort I could have saved. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time.

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.

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.
