"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.

"I have it set on about 1."

I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. Another big tip for flake food users. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. Online instructions are not much help. It took a min to figure out the instructions. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time.

  • 2 Pieces Coral Feeder SPS HPS Feeder 13.77 Inch Long Acrylic Marine Fish Reef Feeding Tool Accurate Coral Spot Feeder Tube for Reef/Anemones/Coral/Brine Shrimp Most Aquarium Organisms

Boao Final Thoughts

"It meets my expectation."

I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. I added a small funnel to catch the food and guide it. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. I have no complaints and fish are happy. For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets.

"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.

"For us it was perfect!"

The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. The price was good, and I recommend it! The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. I purchased this before a month-long vacation. This fish feeder is very configurable and reliable. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable.

"Very handy gadget!"

It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. Another big tip for flake food users. Online instructions are not much help. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. Its alot more simple than how it reads. The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results.

"Here are some pictures."

You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable. The first opening was way too small.

"I plan to buy it."

Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time.

That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. I am not sure if he ever associated the vibration with food.
