"So far so good!"

This does everything but fill itself with food. The first opening was way too small. They mostly were checking in to make sure this EHEIM feeder was working. I figured too much food was better than too little. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder.

Pssopp Final Thoughts

"It worked."

May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. Overall this is a very good feeder. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. This fish feeder is very configurable and reliable.

"And that's a good thing!"

I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. The unit arrived partially charged.

"Easy to set up."

You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. This certainly worked for my purposes. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup.

"Highly recommend it!"

The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine.

"Great for the price."

May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. I figured too much food was better than too little. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day.

"But I love it."

The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. Online instructions are not much help. I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. Its alot more simple than how it reads. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly.

  • SLSON Fish Feeding Ring Aquarium Fish Floating Food Feeder Circle Square and Round with Suction Cup,Set of 2 Black
  • PERFECT SOLUTION FOR YOUR FEEDING:bullies can't hog all the rings, so everyone gets a chance to eat in peace. It even allows the owner to feed different foods to finicky fish. If one ring is filled with food the fish will dash right over there, leaving the second ring open to drop specialty food in for those picky eaters.
  • KEEP YOUR AQUARIUM CLEAN: the fish feeding rings keep the food in a certain area,it doesn't end up scattered all over, or pulled into the filter, which allows more of it to be eaten. That does wonders to reduce waste and maintain water quality.

"No more moisture!"

I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. Easy to setup and ability to set a desired feed schedule. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine.

"And that's a good thing!"

I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. 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. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover.

"These feeders are simple."

I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder.

I would rather overbuy than underbuy. The feeder is also sleek and has a small footprint. I added a small funnel to catch the food and guide it.
