Tetra First Impressions

"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.

Tetra Final Thoughts

"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.

"But I love it."

The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. Online instructions are not much help. I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. Its alot more simple than how it reads. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly.

  • SLSON Fish Feeding Ring Aquarium Fish Floating Food Feeder Circle Square and Round with Suction Cup,Set of 2 Black
  • PERFECT SOLUTION FOR YOUR FEEDING:bullies can't hog all the rings, so everyone gets a chance to eat in peace. It even allows the owner to feed different foods to finicky fish. If one ring is filled with food the fish will dash right over there, leaving the second ring open to drop specialty food in for those picky eaters.
  • KEEP YOUR AQUARIUM CLEAN: the fish feeding rings keep the food in a certain area,it doesn't end up scattered all over, or pulled into the filter, which allows more of it to be eaten. That does wonders to reduce waste and maintain water quality.
  • HIGH QUALITY MATERIAL:this floating feeding ring made of premium rubber and plastic,non-toxic and safe for your fish.Ideal aquarium food feeder for Betta Tetra Guppy Goldfish Clownfish Molly Platy Swordtail Corydoras Cichlids Shark Catfish Glofish Loach Danio Fish.
  • FLOATING FOOD ONLY:suitable for feeding flake foods and other floating foods. Put foods into the circle, it will prevent food from floating around. (no use for sinking food)
  • PACKAGE INCLUDED:1 x Square Shape Ring & 1 x Round Shape Ring.

SLSON Final Thoughts

"No more moisture!"

I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. Easy to setup and ability to set a desired feed schedule. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening. I uploaded a video so if you found this helpful please give it a thumbs up. Sure the stench is appalling but he's fed. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine.

"Highly recommend it!"

The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine.

"Great for the price."

May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip. It lead to a lot of inconsistency and failures till I got it right. On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. I figured too much food was better than too little. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day.

"Highly recommend it!"

I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time.

"Fish survived."

The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed.

"Set the time."

The price was good, and I recommend it! For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. I added a small funnel to catch the food and guide it. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1.

"Hope this review helped."

You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl.

"Worked great!"

Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. Portion size can be adjusted easily. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need.

For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets. This fish feeder is really well made! I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time.

There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. I bought this feeder to use on my betta tank for weeks when I go home from college. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder.

Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. It would probably sell like hot cakes. It works great and kept our fish live for a month absence. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. Don't lose the instructions or you'll go crazy trying to program it. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time.
