"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.

Saim B0000000236 Final Thoughts

"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.

"Overall, a good product."

This certainly worked for my purposes. This does everything but fill itself with food. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. This thing must be running on uranium. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. This thing must be running on uranium.

"It still works just fine."

Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip.

"These feeders are simple."

The first opening was way too small. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. Overall, this product has been great. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole.

"Love this feeder."

Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. I also find it much easier to program. Its alot more simple than how it reads. I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag.

"Operation wise, no flaws."

Portion size can be adjusted easily. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time.

"It still works just fine."

I have used this every day for a year and love it. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. Overall, this product has been great. Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting.

And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1.

The unit arrived partially charged.

This thing must be running on uranium. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great!
