"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.

"Will buy again."

Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. I figured too much food was better than too little. Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day.

"Will buy again."

There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine. The unit arrived partially charged. I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! It would probably sell like hot cakes. The size of the tank is too small to recommend. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch.

This thing must be running on uranium. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. The unit arrived partially charged. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. Its alot more simple than how it reads. The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets.

"A VERY good value."

The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting.

6. Penn-Plax Pro Balance Vacation Fish Feeder – Slow Release Food That’s Great for Weekend Vacays: ...

User Ratings: 62 7

Penn-Plax First Impressions

"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).

"Absolutely love it."

Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. Don't lose the instructions or you'll go crazy trying to program it. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. Comes on a swivel bracket to accommodate special angles for installation. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better.

"Ease of use, five stars."

The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. I purchased this before a month-long vacation. The first opening was way too small. I have no complaints and fish are happy. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. It took a min to figure out the instructions.
