"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.

There are a couple ways to mount this feeder. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. They mostly were checking in to make sure this EHEIM feeder was working.

"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.

"This is a 24-hour clock."

The first opening was way too small. So you don't have to constantly be adding food. I have used this every day for a year and love it. The other way you can mount this is with a stick on mount. That is the only potential issue with automatic feeders. For the gouramis I have flake food, but for the corys I have sinking pellets. Yes, if you have the door open too much it'll dump food in.

"This is all automatic."

On this one you don't have to reset anything when filling. You can make it work with these, but you need to be careful. It has a very good instruction manual and can be followed with ease. There is a small sliding door that allows the food to escape. Suitable for locating anywhere on the tank ledge. I also find it much easier to program. Otherwise you can hang this pretty much anywhere if your tank doesn't have a cover.

"It worked."

The only other thing that you should be aware of is the large size of the unit. I tested it on plain paper several times before graduating it to the tank.

"Fish survived."

Programming feeding times is easy using the instructions provided. However, I was able to get it to stay stuck in between two. For the price, I do not regret my purchase. I like to keep consistency with the tank. You can also set it to feed at up to 4 times a day. Comes on a swivel bracket to accommodate special angles for installation. The first opening was way too small.

"Think outside the box."

The clamp is sturdy but could be improved by rubberized grips for the tank glass. USB charging is quick and easy and uses a standard micro USB cable. Online instructions are not much help. I saw another reviewer who said they had two of these on their tank. I like to keep consistency with the tank. Also don't leave the USB port connected to a charger all the time. I have not, however, tested it with pelleted food.

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.
