Zoo Med BF1 First Impressions

"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.

Zoo Med BF1 Final Thoughts

"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.

"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.

"I love the device."

It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. Taping a piece of ribbon in place worked out better. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. It's been two weeks and Betta Boy has figured out who feeds him now. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. I have a 75 gallon tank, and removed a 1. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank.

YXRAN Final Thoughts

"Easy assembly."

Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in. You slide the opening to adjust how much food you want to come out. I did a couple test pours into a plastic bag so I could get it just right. I even watched them being fed on the home video cameras while I was away. 3-second Long Press on rightmost button turns feeder on and off. This does everything but fill itself with food. Only downside was that the hole was too big for red tiny bit fish food.

"Recommend!"

It is the quiet feeder I ever have. The size of the food compartment is huge depending on the number of fish you have. Product does NOT come with required AA batteries. The interface on the feeder is extremely user friendly. Online instructions are not much help. The pellets stick to the tape and slowly build up clogging the hole. It took a min to figure out the instructions.

However, this is not a good fit for that purpose. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. This certainly worked for my purposes. I look forward to my next vacation with asking someone to feed my fish.

"Seems to work good."

Programming was not too difficult, but does need careful reading. It holds a very large amount of food and was very overkill for my setup. I can leave town and not worry about the fish. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. Unfortunately, most pet store aquariums do have a lip. I have the Stage 2 round pellet feed. Forgetting to feed your fish will not happen again with this Auto Fish Feeder.

"Very pleased."

I have a one gallon tank with a betta. I tried his usual food pellets and quickly decided that they would not work at all. This will ruin li-ion batteries over time. It would probably sell like hot cakes. Set the hour then minute, then number of rotations at that time. Consistent food size is the key to more consistent results. The cup is removable and there is a large door on the side as well.
