Excellent for vacations and for freeing you from the chore of daily tank maintenance! Dispenses flakes, pellets, or dry medications 1-4 times per day. Runs on a quiet, reliable, electric motor, so there are no batteries to replace, and the adjustable screw-mounts attach quickly to standard tanks.

The feeder has 15 food slots. The hopper holds up to 4 months of fish food and attaches to the fish feeder. Feed fish daily up to 4 months automatically.

Manufacturer Warranty: 1 year from date of purchase.

Hopper

The concept of the feeder is good. However,before it would work properly I had to cut of, with my dremel, 1/4 of the barrier on the 3rd chamber. This was because the pellets would not pass through. The turning of the cylnder tried to cut off any pellets that stuck up, instead of just pushing them over. With my small modification the autofeeder works fine.

feeder

This feeder works great once you work out the bugs. I would only use small pellet food. Do not use flakes. I modified the hopper dividers to prevent binding. I made an elevated bracket to avoid condensation and fish splashing water on unit (causes food to not drop from feeding pockets). I only fill the right and left hopper chambers to avoid over stressing thr feeder. I feed once a day and I get 53 days of feeding. Great when i am on RV trips.

not worth it

very difficult to set up, you need to set up clamps and pins theirs no set time after you turn it on it feeds an 1.5 hour later it doesn't hold that much ( it looks like it does but you cant fill the middle it only works with small size food its made very cheaply it looks like it will brake i didn't keep it that long cause it wasn't worth the money

Caution

inirially worked great a lot of trouble with multiple feeding should have been designed better with simple changes You may need to AVOID using the hopper and put food in every other chamber which is 1/4 inch by 1/2 inch wide and 3/8 inch deep (approx) and use the single feed option I cant understand why they dont produce better quality these days although this is the closest to fair quality that i have found in 2 years

They redesigned is feeder to my disappointment. The new clamps go into the tank water, that will lead to salt creep for my salt tank. If it goes without notice - you will be replacing it, again.

Not that great!

It is true there are 15 food slots, but each slot is so tiny you cannot really use medium size pellets. Also, you need to use a small flat screwdriver to change the number of feedings in a day.

Really Not That Great!

I have nothing but trouble with it. Each time I had to get it replaced because the other one does not work, it doesn't work. None of them works.
