"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."

It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. The packaging says not to use rechargeable batteries. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out.

Overall this is a very good feeder. It would probably sell like hot cakes. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup.

"It s working out great."

The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. The other way you can mount this is with a stick on mount. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. I am very happy to own this feeder.

The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed.

"No complain."

The feeder is also sleek and has a small footprint. The first opening was way too small. This fish feeder is very configurable and reliable. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use. This certainly worked for my purposes.

"Absolutely love it."

I figured too much food was better than too little. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. Overall, this product has been great. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine.

Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. For the price, I do not regret my purchase. He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge.

It took a min to figure out the instructions. I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think.
