"Overall, a good product."

This certainly worked for my purposes. This does everything but fill itself with food. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. This thing must be running on uranium. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. This thing must be running on uranium.

NICREW N0673A Final Thoughts

"It still works just fine."

Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip.

"And that's a good thing!"

Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. Online instructions are not much help. I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing.

"Good luck."

Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. This certainly worked for my purposes. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in.

Fish Mate 211 First Impressions

"Right above him."

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. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base. Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine.

"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.

"Works as advertised."

Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time.

"Operation wise, no flaws."

Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1.

"Easy to install and use."

Online instructions are not much help. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank.

"Very quiet in operation."

You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. This does everything but fill itself with food. The price was good, and I recommend it! I purchased this before a month-long vacation. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. I am not sure if he ever associated the vibration with food. This thing must be running on uranium.

"Easy assembly."

Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. I even watched them being fed on the home video cameras while I was away. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. This does everything but fill itself with food. Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food.

"Very quiet in operation."

He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. I am not sure if he ever associated the vibration with food. The unit arrived partially charged. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish.

"Ease of use, five stars."

This does everything but fill itself with food. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. I figured too much food was better than too little. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. There were a few cheaper feeders that I considered.

"Works great now."

I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. For the price, I do not regret my purchase. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food.

My son loves this automatic fish feeder. This does everything but fill itself with food. Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine.

That number of rotations shows as tiny number in the left-most lower window. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl.

The first opening was way too small. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. It would probably sell like hot cakes. I would rather overbuy than underbuy.

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.
