"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.

"Nice mounting features."

The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. This certainly worked for my purposes. I have used this every day for a year and love it. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries.

"Very pleased."

They mostly were checking in to make sure this EHEIM feeder was working. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. The price was good, and I recommend it! Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. I also find it much easier to program.

"Easy to install and use."

However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. This certainly worked for my purposes. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. I like to keep consistency with the tank. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable.

Shyfish Final Thoughts

"No more moisture!"

Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. Portion size can be adjusted easily. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about.

"It's closer to 4."

This thing must be running on uranium. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. Programming was not too difficult, but does need careful reading. I have no complaints and fish are happy. I even watched them being fed on the home video cameras while I was away. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip.

I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. The unit arrived partially charged. He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day.

"Just like life I guess."

There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. Overall this is a very good feeder. This does everything but fill itself with food. The first opening was way too small. The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries.

There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. Easy to setup and ability to set a desired feed schedule. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results.

This thing must be running on uranium. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. The unit arrived partially charged. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. Its alot more simple than how it reads. The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets.

Two Little Fishies 481573 Final Thoughts

"A VERY good value."

The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting.

"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.
