Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. The other way you can mount this is with a stick on mount. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws.

Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. Overall this is a very good feeder.

"Overall, a good product."

This certainly worked for my purposes. This does everything but fill itself with food. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. This thing must be running on uranium. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. This thing must be running on uranium.

NICREW N0673A Final Thoughts

"It still works just fine."

Otherwise, food collects itself on the rear side of aquarium. Finally, I can take a vacation without worrying about who to ask to feed my fish. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover. I do get food on the edges of the opening which I push in later for the fish. May want to test it a few times before leaving for a long trip.

"Highly recommend it!"

The unit arrived partially charged. My son loves this automatic fish feeder. For the price, I do not regret my purchase. He and his wife travel to India to see his in-laws.

"That did it."

Took me all of 5 minutes start to finish to get it set up. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable. Its alot more simple than how it reads. I figured too much food was better than too little. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. There are a couple ways to mount this feeder.

"Absolutely love it."

I figured too much food was better than too little. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. Overall, this product has been great. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food. So far I have only used flake food in it, but it's handling it just fine.

Eheim 7006293 Final Thoughts

"Problem solved!"

Overall, this product has been great. This does everything but fill itself with food. Other than this complicated setting, it's very easy to use. I am sure they all would have worked, but I was skeptical about some features. It is tied down to keep it from falling into the tank. It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. It would probably sell like hot cakes.

"I plan to buy it."

I bought this feeder to use on my betta tank for weeks when I go home from college. The slider door lets you set it for as wide or as narrow as you need. I have mine set at the smallest possible opening. The slider door does not move on its own during rotations. Another nice feature is the feeder will rotate on its screw attachment base. Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food. Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided.

"Best thing I ever bought."

This would have been a great investment when I started my aquarium 30 years ago. I have a one gallon tank with a betta. The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. This thing must be running on uranium. This is best if you have not edge on your aquarium. It runs off batteries so it lasts the full two weeks they are gone. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed.

The feeder has helped me automate my tank, which is one less thing to worry about. Portion size can be adjusted easily. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well.

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.
