"Works really well."

Easy to setup and ability to set a desired feed schedule. The size of the tank is too small to recommend. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening. I figured too much food was better than too little. He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day.

"Highly recommend it!"

The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. This fish feeder is really well made! This fish feeder is really well made! One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1. Overall, this product has been great.

"I have it set on about 1."

I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. Portion size can be adjusted easily. I also find it much easier to program. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl.

  • Catappa Leaf Clip (1 pc), Compact 4” x 2” Veggie or Catappa Leaf Holder, Secure, Removable Suction Cup Base with Clear Clamp, Improve Health of Betta, Goldfish, Guppy, Shrimp and Freshwater Fish
  • ✔ REMOVE AND REPLACE LEAVES IN SECONDS --- Many fish owners and aquarium enthusiasts are aware of the incredible benefits of catappa leaves. Most of them simply toss the leaves into the tank, wait for the nutrients to deplete and then struggle to remove the debris. With the super convenient SunGrow Catappa Leaf Clip, you can remove and replace leaves in seconds.
  • ✔ HELPS PROMOTE HEALTHY, HAPPY FISH --- Adding catappa leaves to your aquarium provides your pet fish with healing minerals, protective shelter and a delicious dietary supplement. These nutritional wonders add beneficial tannins to your water which naturally lowers the pH levels promoting healthier and happier aquatic pets.
  • ✔ MAKES FEEDING TREATS EASIER AND DRIER --- Just like the clear holder makes changing leaves easier, it also makes feeding simpler and keeps you drier! Shrimp, betta and other fish love to nibble on treats such as catappa leaves, dried seaweed and dehydrated vegetable pieces. Now you can feed your pets any of these treats and remove the leftovers without getting your arm or clothing wet.
  • ✔ COMPACT, DISCREET 4” X 2” SIZE --- For minimal distraction from your beautiful underwater environment, the practical leaf clip is compact in size and discreet in color. The black base and transparent clamp only takes up 4” x 2” of space and securely attaches to the wall of your aquarium or fish tank using a reliable suction cup.
  • ✔ MULTIPLE PURPOSES OUTSIDE OF THE TANK --- Not only is the suction cup clamp very useful inside of your aquarium, there are also many uses outside of the tank. At home, suction the cup to your fridge and clip notes for family members. In the office, use it to hang your daily “to-do list”. At school, teachers can use these practical holders to display student artwork.

"Works great now."

I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. I added a small funnel to catch the food and guide it. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable.

"These feeders are simple."

I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it.

"Recommend!"

All the time and effort I could have saved. Forgetting to feed your fish will not happen again with this Auto Fish Feeder. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing. The rechargeable battery makes me feel better about the environment. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. I also find it much easier to program. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder.

"Very pleased."

Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. This fish feeder is very configurable and reliable. Online instructions are not much help. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape.

"Overall, a good product."

I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time.

"Works really well."

Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. That number of rotations shows as tiny number in the left-most lower window. It has a button you can press to do a manual feeding. The price was good, and I recommend it! You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries.

Easy to setup and ability to set a desired feed schedule. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. It took a min to figure out the instructions.

Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains. I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. Its alot more simple than how it reads. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish.

So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. I learned this the hard way coming back from a one week vacation. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right.

It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. I learned this the hard way coming back from a one week vacation.
