1. Wardley Hartz Weekend Feeder, 12 Count

User Ratings: 73 3

Wardley First Impressions

"Think outside the box."

The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I purchased this before a month-long vacation. Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. The battery is a rechargeable lithium battery that comes with a usb cable. Filling the container is easy, and the auto timer is amazing.

Wardley Final Thoughts

"Use small pellets."

The rechargeable battery makes me feel better about the environment. The packaging says not to use rechargeable batteries. This thing must be running on uranium. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1. Portion size can be adjusted easily. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed.

2. Current USA Aquachef Automatic Aquarium Fish Feeder

Current USA First Impressions

"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.

Current USA Final Thoughts

"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.

SLSON First Impressions

"That did it."

Must be at least 1 or it will not feed at all. It would probably sell like hot cakes. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. This does everything but fill itself with food. Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding. I learned this the hard way coming back from a one week vacation.

  • Betta Feeding Ring,Aquarium Fish Feeding Ring Floating Food Feeder with Suction Cup Reduces Wastage and Maintains Water Quality,Round Shape
  • 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 Round Shape Ring with Suction Cup.

SLSON Final Thoughts

"Completely unnecessary."

It took a min to figure out the instructions. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. One dispensing into a guppy tank once a day. I simply modified my hood to accommodate this feeder. All the time and effort I could have saved. I have this on a 60 gallon aquarium and so far it's working great! It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup.

Boao First Impressions

"I hope this helps."

I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. And yes, you can use flake food like I do, just fine. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base. Fast delivery,easy instructions to set up time and feeding.

Boao Final Thoughts

"Hope this review helped."

The price was good, and I recommend it! For the price, I do not regret my purchase. I bought this feeder to use on my betta tank for weeks when I go home from college. The first opening was way too small. Once I got the opening where I wanted it, things have gone great. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. Portion size can be adjusted easily.

"This worked very well."

This thing must be running on uranium. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine. The unit arrived partially charged. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. Its alot more simple than how it reads. The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets.

"A VERY good value."

The barrel with the food spins at each specified feeding time. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. I like the fact this uses batteries and not a cable. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. The notches are too widely spaced and too ill fitting.

"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.

"Seems to work good."

This fish feeder is very configurable and reliable. The unit itself is very sturdy and well made. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. They mostly were checking in to make sure this EHEIM feeder was working. He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. You don't have as much control over applications as if you feed by hand.

"Works really well."

He eats once a day, but you can set this to feed up to four times a day. Not carbon zinc, alkaline batteries. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws. They have fish and the need for them to be fed was much needed. Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. There was no problem mounting the unit on the lip of the bowl.

"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.

"I have it set on about 1."

I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. It works great and kept our fish live for a month absence. I even watched them being fed on the home video cameras while I was away. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well. I like to keep consistency with the tank. Otherwise you will no doubt eventually get water in there.

"The motor is very quiet."

Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. I have used this every day for a year and love it. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. You also have the ability to set the portion of feed to be dropped. All the time and effort I could have saved.
