"Very handy gadget!"

Comes on a swivel bracket to accommodate special angles for installation. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. 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. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. This certainly worked for my purposes. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about.

Petacc Final Thoughts

"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.

The unit arrived partially charged. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. Don't lose the instructions or you'll go crazy trying to program it. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. The unit arrived partially charged. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features.

"I plan to buy it."

There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. I like to keep consistency with the tank. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results.

All the time and effort I could have saved. Forgetting to feed your fish will not happen again with this Auto Fish Feeder. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing.

Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same.

Texas Hunter Products Final Thoughts

"This is a 24-hour clock."

Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. That number of rotations shows as tiny number in the left-most lower window. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. The feeder is also sleek and has a small footprint. It works great and kept our fish live for a month absence.

"Hope this review helped."

The price was good, and I recommend it! For the price, I do not regret my purchase. I bought this feeder to use on my betta tank for weeks when I go home from college. The first opening was way too small. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. Portion size can be adjusted easily.

Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. Its alot more simple than how it reads. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. Overall, this product has been great.
