"I was gone for 12 days."

The rechargeable battery makes me feel better about the environment. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. For the price, I do not regret my purchase. It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right. Online instructions are not much help. You can also set it to feed at up to 4 times a day.

"Works as advertised."

That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. Comes on a swivel bracket to accommodate special angles for installation. Portion size can be adjusted easily.

"Think outside the box."

The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. The unit arrived partially charged. The size of the tank is too small to recommend.

"No complain."

The feeder is also sleek and has a small footprint. The first opening was way too small. This fish feeder is very configurable and reliable. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use. This certainly worked for my purposes.

"Operation wise, no flaws."

I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! There were a few cheaper feeders that I considered. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. For the price, I do not regret my purchase. It took a min to figure out the instructions. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing.

"Here are some pictures."

Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. It would probably sell like hot cakes. It works great and kept our fish live for a month absence. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. Don't lose the instructions or you'll go crazy trying to program it. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time.

MMLUCK First Impressions

"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.

  • MMLUCK Adjustable Automatic Fish Food Feeders Timed Auto Fish Feeding Device Aquarium Fish Tank Pond Food Dispenser
  • NTELLIGENT TIMING: When you work, shop or travel, this product can help you feed your favorite fish in the aquarium. Feeding time can be set to once or twice a day, depending on your pet fish's eating habits.
  • LARGE CAPACITY: The timing feeder has a large space for storing fish food, which is suitable for any type of fish food. One fill can feed the fish for a long time, so that your fish can also eat when you are away from home for a long time.
  • GOOD SEALING:The place where fish food is stored is made of high density plastic, which has good sealing performance. If the fish feeder is placed on the fish tank for a long time, the fish food in the fish tank will not be affected by moisture, and it can still be put into the fish tank to feed the fish.
  • LONG WORKING TIME:The fish feeder does not need wires and sockets for power supply. It only needs two batteries to work for a long time. It's very safe for a house where no one lives.
  • SIMPLE INSTALLATION AND OPERATION: The design of timing fish feeder is simple and practical, with clear switch and rotating screw to control food flow, which is very easy for everyone to operate. The timing fish feeder can be installed on all types of fish tanks and has a wide range of applications.

"Good price too."

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.

"That was quick."

I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. All the time and effort I could have saved. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. The packaging says not to use rechargeable batteries. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features.

  • SunGrow Feeding Ring, 4x4 Inches, Floating Food Square, Easy to Install, Reduces Waste and Maintains Water Quality, Suitable for Flakes and Floating Fish Foods, for Goldfish and Other Smaller Fish
  • ✔ ENCOURAGES PICKY EATERS TO EAT MORE --- Some fish are more finicky than others or may be a bit more shy and not want to eat with the other fish. The SunGrow Floating Fish Feeding Ring allows you to feed specialty foods to the pickier fish while sprinkling standard floating fish food to the general population of fish. It won’t take long for your finicky fish to quickly learn that the square fish feeder is where to find their supper.
  • ✔ PREVENTS FISH FROM BEING BULLIES --- A great way to prevent fish in a community tank from being bullies is to use multiple floating feeding rings. Fill one square fish feeder and allow your more aggressive fish to dash over to eat. Once they are occupied, add floating fish food to a second feeding square for the more timid fish. Bullies can’t hog all the rings, so add as many as you feel necessary so all your fish can eat in peace.
  • ✔ REDUCES DEBRIS BY KEEPING FOOD CONTAINED --- By placing your pet fish’s food directly into the feeder square, it inhibits the flakes and pellets from floating into unwanted places such as the filter. A cleaner aquarium filter is far more effective at keeping your tank’s water at a higher quality level and reduces excess debris throughout the tank.
  • ✔ FITS PERFECTLY IN A FISH TANK --- At a convenient size of 4” x 4” (10cm x 10cm), the lightweight Square Feeding Ring for small fish from SunGrow is constructed of safe, high quality black plastic. It comes complete with a matching black suction cup to hold it securely in place. You also have the option of allowing the fish feeder to float freely along the surface of your freshwater tank or saltwater aquarium.
  • ✔ SAVES FISH OWNERS’ TIME AND MONEY --- Effective and creative, the Square Feeding Ring for your neon tetra, guppy, and goldfish is fantastic at saving money on excess food, maintaining high-quality water and reducing filter clogging. Placing your flakes into a specified area means that you can control the dispersal of food and more is eaten and less is wasted. Less stray food and filter clogs allows you to spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying your pet fish.

"Set up a breeze."

The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. I also find it much easier to program. It is the quiet feeder I ever have. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time.

"Not anymore."

I have no complaints and fish are happy. I also find it much easier to program. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. The price was good, and I recommend it! Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about.

The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I learned this the hard way coming back from a one week vacation. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. It also allow multiple feeding option and times.

Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. It is the quiet feeder I ever have. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need.

"Shame as a great idea."

For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets. This fish feeder is really well made! I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time.
