"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.

2. (3 Pack) Vacation Feeder - Crab Shape - 7-Day (1 Feeder Per Pack)

ProBalance First Impressions

"This thing worked great."

Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. I figured too much food was better than too little. The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made.

"Love this feeder."

They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base. Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use.

PROCHE PRO-E Final Thoughts

"It's closer to 4."

Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. I figured too much food was better than too little. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. It works great and kept our fish live for a month absence. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. Portion size can be adjusted easily.

"Very handy gadget!"

You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have.

"Thank you."

The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. The packaging says not to use rechargeable batteries. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening. The other way you can mount this is with a stick on mount. The first opening was way too small. I have no complaints and fish are happy.

"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.
