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.

Tetra AQ-78247 First Impressions

"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.

3. SunGrow Betta Feeding Ring, 3 Inches, Practical Round Floating Food, Reduces Waste & Maintains Water...

User Ratings: 50 8

SunGrow First Impressions

"Just a great design."

The packaging says not to use rechargeable batteries. Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. I like to keep consistency with the tank. Forgetting to feed your fish will not happen again with this Auto Fish Feeder. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it.

  • SunGrow Betta Feeding Ring, 3 Inches, Practical Round Floating Food, Reduces Waste & Maintains Water Quality, Suitable for Flakes & Other Floating Fish Foods, for Guppy, Goldfish and Other Small Fish
  • ✔ ENCOURAGES PICKY EATERS TO EAT MORE --- Some fish are more finicky than others or may be a bit more shy and not want to eat with the other fish. The SunGrow Floating Fish Feeding Ring allows you to feed specialty foods to the pickier fish while sprinkling standard floating fish food to the general population of fish. It won’t take long for your finicky fish to quickly learn that the square fish feeder is where to find their supper.
  • ✔ PREVENTS FISH FROM BEING BULLIES --- A great way to prevent fish in a community tank from being bullies is to use multiple floating feeding rings. Fill one square fish feeder and allow your more aggressive fish to dash over to eat. Once they are occupied, add floating fish food to a second feeding square for the more timid fish. Bullies can’t hog all the rings, so add as many as you feel necessary so all your fish can eat in peace.
  • ✔ REDUCES DEBRIS BY KEEPING FOOD CONTAINED --- By placing your pet fish’s food directly into the feeder square, it inhibits the flakes and pellets from floating into unwanted places such as the filter. A cleaner aquarium filter is far more effective at keeping your tank’s water at a higher quality level and reduces excess debris throughout the tank.
  • ✔ FITS PERFECTLY IN A FISH TANK --- At a convenient size of 4” x 4” (10cm x 10cm), the lightweight Square Feeding Ring for small fish from SunGrow is constructed of safe, high quality black plastic. It comes complete with a matching black suction cup to hold it securely in place. You also have the option of allowing the fish feeder to float freely along the surface of your freshwater tank or saltwater aquarium.
  • ✔ SAVES FISH OWNERS’ TIME AND MONEY --- Effective and creative, the Square Feeding Ring for your neon tetra, guppy, and goldfish is fantastic at saving money on excess food, maintaining high-quality water and reducing filter clogging. Placing your flakes into a specified area means that you can control the dispersal of food and more is eaten and less is wasted. Less stray food and filter clogs allows you to spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying your pet fish.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"Recommend!"

3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. I also find it much easier to program. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. Don't lose the instructions or you'll go crazy trying to program it. It works great and kept our fish live for a month absence. There were a few cheaper feeders that I considered.

"Love this feeder."

You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. This certainly worked for my purposes. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. I figured too much food was better than too little. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl. I couldn't hear it was running still I saw fish foods in the tank.

"Works as advertised."

The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. I bought this feeder to use on my betta tank for weeks when I go home from college. Its alot more simple than how it reads. They mostly were checking in to make sure this EHEIM feeder was working. The price was good, and I recommend it! It would probably sell like hot cakes.

WEAVERBIRD First Impressions

"This is a 24-hour clock."

Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. You can tell it how many times you want it to spin, up to 3, I think. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. It is the quiet feeder I ever have. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. I have used this every day for a year and love it. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations.

"Completely unnecessary."

It's been using for twice a day for 5 weeks, still no need for charging the battery. Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. 5 notches and it's worked perfectly for me. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it. Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable.

TETRA (DALEVILLE) Tetra 77151 5 Day Gel Fish Feeder Final Thoughts

"Ease of use, five stars."

The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. I purchased this before a month-long vacation. The first opening was way too small. I have no complaints and fish are happy. I have been feeding twice a day with one spin per time. It took a min to figure out the instructions.

"Worked for my beta."

It works great and kept our fish live for a month absence. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing. I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there. However until I find a tank that fits my space, that is it.

"Nice mounting features."

I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries. They even include two alkaline AA batteries in the box. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole.

"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.

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.

It takes 3 presses of the set button to move to the 3rd feeding time. I have no complaints and fish are happy. I am not sure if he ever associated the vibration with food.

"And that's a good thing!"

I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. I would rather overbuy than underbuy. Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover.
