"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.

"What a great product!"

I figured too much food was better than too little. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish.

"Fish survived."

You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. I think that's a great idea and I will probably do the same. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. Overall this is a very good feeder.

"Very quiet in operation."

I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. You can also set it to feed at up to 4 times a day. The price was good, and I recommend it! I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. Battery indicator on the display lets you know how much battery life remains.

"No complain."

I would rather overbuy than underbuy. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. I decided to use it as the everyday feeder, and not just when I'm out of town. That being said, HOWEVER, as with everything, there are duds in every batch. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose.

"For us it was perfect!"

I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1. Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder. He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use.

"I highly recommend."

The first opening was way too small. This certainly worked for my purposes. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. This thing must be running on uranium. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed.

"And that's a good thing!"

Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. I figure it holds enough for about 5 days at the current feeding rate. Online instructions are not much help. I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing.

"Very quiet in operation."

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.

"Easy to install and use."

However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. This certainly worked for my purposes. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. I like to keep consistency with the tank. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable.

"No more moisture!"

Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. Portion size can be adjusted easily. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about.

Overall this is a very good feeder. It would probably sell like hot cakes. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup.

"It s working out great."

The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. The other way you can mount this is with a stick on mount. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. I am very happy to own this feeder.
