"Product works great."

The rechargeable battery makes me feel better about the environment. That number of rotations shows as tiny number in the left-most lower window. Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover. Programming was not too difficult, but does need careful reading. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off.

"Product works."

I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. I am very happy to own this feeder. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish.

"The motor is very quiet."

Another big tip for flake food users. The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. It took a min to figure out the instructions. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. They mostly were checking in to make sure this EHEIM feeder was working.

Tetra AQ-78247 Final Thoughts

"Overall, a good product."

Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. Online instructions are not much help. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. I learned this the hard way coming back from a one week vacation.

"Refilling is very easy."

I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. I like to keep consistency with the tank. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. This certainly worked for my purposes. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. It also allow multiple feeding option and times.

"Buy another product."

There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. I mix Omega One Color and Tetra Color flake foods in a ziplock bag. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. Another big tip for flake food users.

There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. It has a button you can press to do a manual feeding. I feed small pellet food, about the size of sand. Portion size can be adjusted easily.

"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.

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.

"So far so good!"

This does everything but fill itself with food. The first opening was way too small. They mostly were checking in to make sure this EHEIM feeder was working. I figured too much food was better than too little. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone.

May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish. Overall this is a very good feeder. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries.

Penn-Plax First Impressions

"Works great now."

This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results.

  • Penn-Plax Pro Balance Vacation Fish Feeder | Slow Release Food That’s Great for Vacays | 1 Block Feeds up to 14 Days | 1 Fish Shaped Block (1 Package)
  • GREAT FOR VACAYS: Worried about finding a fish-sitter as you plan for your next getaway or adventure? Or, whenever or not they’ll overfeed your fish? Fear no more! Our Pro Balance Vacation Fish Feeder Blocks will feed your fish while you’re away. Each block feeds to up 14 days, and each package contains 1 Fish Shaped Block.
  • IDEAL FOR 10 – 15 GALLON TANKS: Our Fish Feeder Blocks work best in aquariums that are between 10 and 15 Gallons in size. One block will last 10 to 14 days, depending on the PH level and water temperature. A minimum water temperature of 72°F (22°C) and PH level of 6.6 to 7.0 is most efficient for the release of food particles.
  • REQUIRES AERATION & CIRCULATION: Within hours, our Feeder Blocks will start to dissolve, releasing nutritious freeze-dried foods while neutralizing your aquarium’s water. In order for this to happen, your tank should have the proper aeration and circulation. Our Feeder Blocks dissolve normally with setups that have an air stone or filter.
  • GIVE IT A TRY BEFORE YOUR TRIP: Just like us, our fish can get picky over their food. As a suggestion, you may want to place 1 Feeder Block in your tank 2 to 3 weeks before your vacation or trip. This way, you’ll see if they like it or not. To take it a step further, you may want to leave the tank alone as you test our Feed Blocks, mimicking the trip.

This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. I have used this every day for a year and love it. The unit arrived partially charged. I have a one gallon tank with a betta.

The slider door does not move on its own during rotations.
