"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.

The unit arrived partially charged. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. For the price, I do not regret my purchase. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws.

"That did it."

Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable. Its alot more simple than how it reads. I figured too much food was better than too little. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder.

"I was gone for 12 days."

I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. The feeder is also sleek and has a small footprint. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use.

"So they just work."

He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. I also find it much easier to program. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. You can also set it to feed at up to 4 times a day. Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in.

"Absolutely love it."

He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. The unit arrived partially charged. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. It is the quiet feeder I ever have. Don't lose the instructions or you'll go crazy trying to program it.

"Refilling is very easy."

Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. Another big tip for flake food users. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all.

"Seems to work good."

It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. Forgetting to feed your fish will not happen again with this Auto Fish Feeder.

"And that's a good thing!"

They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. It is the quiet feeder I ever have. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. All the time and effort I could have saved.

"It s working out great."

The first opening was way too small. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. The price was good, and I recommend it! Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover. I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip.

"Worked great!"

It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. The packaging says not to use rechargeable batteries. I learned this the hard way coming back from a one week vacation. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag. The first opening was way too small.
