"Very quiet."

I can leave town and not worry about the fish. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. It works great and kept our fish live for a month absence. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish.

"Just a great design."

The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries. I have a one gallon tank with a betta. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine.

May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. It also allow multiple feeding option and times. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two.

"These feeders are simple."

I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it.

"It s working out great."

It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. I have a one gallon tank with a betta. He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day.

"Product works great."

The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. Online instructions are not much help. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. I can leave town and not worry about the fish.

"Seems to work good."

So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. This fish feeder is really well made! Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in.

"Fish survived."

Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time. I have used this every day for a year and love it. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box.

I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. The packaging says not to use rechargeable batteries. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town. I am very happy to own this feeder. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. I purchased this before a month-long vacation.
