"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.

"This worked very well."

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.

"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.

"Worked great!"

However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. Not sure why they suggest not to do so, but it worked just fine. They mostly were checking in to make sure this EHEIM feeder was working. This fish feeder is very configurable and reliable. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base.

"Recommend!"

Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. It has a button you can press to do a manual feeding. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed.

"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.

"Fish survived."

Forgetting to feed your fish will not happen again with this Auto Fish Feeder. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use. That number of rotations shows as tiny number in the left-most lower window. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town. This fish feeder is really well made!

"I would recommend it!"

3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. 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. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank.

"Set up a breeze."

I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag. This thing must be running on uranium. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. It has a button you can press to do a manual feeding. For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly.

"Works great now."

I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. The size of the tank is too small to recommend. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. This fish feeder is really well made! The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time.

Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. Another big tip for flake food users. There were a few cheaper feeders that I considered. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. This certainly worked for my purposes. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries.

This certainly worked for my purposes. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have.

"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.
