"This is a 24-hour clock."

The first opening was way too small. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. I have used this every day for a year and love it. The other way you can mount this is with a stick on mount. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets. Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in.

"This is all automatic."

On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. I also find it much easier to program. Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover.

"This thing worked great."

I am not sure if he ever associated the vibration with food. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine. I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need.

ANDGOO Final Thoughts

"This feeder is awesome."

The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I am very happy to own this feeder. Overall this is a very good feeder. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. The size of the tank is too small to recommend. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip.

Tetra AQ-78247 First Impressions

"The motor is very quiet."

Another big tip for flake food users. The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. It took a min to figure out the instructions. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. They mostly were checking in to make sure this EHEIM feeder was working.

Tetra AQ-78247 Final Thoughts

"Overall, a good product."

Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. Online instructions are not much help. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. I learned this the hard way coming back from a one week vacation.

"Think outside the box."

The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I purchased this before a month-long vacation. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing.

"Use small pellets."

The rechargeable battery makes me feel better about the environment. The packaging says not to use rechargeable batteries. This thing must be running on uranium. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1. Portion size can be adjusted easily. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed.

"I was gone for 12 days."

I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. The feeder is also sleek and has a small footprint. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use.

"So they just work."

He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. I also find it much easier to program. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. You can also set it to feed at up to 4 times a day. Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in.

Comes on a swivel bracket to accommodate special angles for installation. The unit arrived partially charged. I bought this feeder to use on my betta tank for weeks when I go home from college.

So you don't have to constantly be adding food. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. Overall this is a very good feeder.

"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.

"Operation wise, no flaws."

Portion size can be adjusted easily. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time.
