"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.

"So they just work."

For the price, I do not regret my purchase. I bought this feeder to use on my betta tank for weeks when I go home from college. Online instructions are not much help. Don't lose the instructions or you'll go crazy trying to program it. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand.

"A VERY good value."

It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. You can also set it to feed at up to 4 times a day. I am not sure if he ever associated the vibration with food.

"Absolutely love it."

He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. The unit arrived partially charged. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. It is the quiet feeder I ever have. Don't lose the instructions or you'll go crazy trying to program it.

"Refilling is very easy."

Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. Another big tip for flake food users. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all.

"Works GREAT."

Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. I purchased this before a month-long vacation. That number of rotations shows as tiny number in the left-most lower window. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great!

"That was quick."

However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. The size of the tank is too small to recommend. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think.

"Right above him."

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).

The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. I added a small funnel to catch the food and guide it. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole.
