The Automatic Feeding System (AFS) is the only automatic fish feeder designed specifically to work with the Apex AquaController. Not only does it seal your food to keep it dry, but it meters out small amounts of food on the schedule you set right in your Apex. And, you can set up more complex feeding routines that tell it to feed only after doing things like turning off your pumps, skimmer, etc. and then having them come back on automatically after feeding time!

Features
  • Feeds pellet or flake food in varying amounts Apex can be set so that the AFS will feed from one time to as many times as you like throughout the day
  • Connects via the Apex Aquabus “Stay Dry” system has a sealed food container that extends and retracts for each feeding. This keeps food dry and prevents clumping and clogging.
  • The lowest setting feeds just a few grains of pellet food so multiple small feedings are possible
  • Allows for optimal feeding — small amounts many times a day
  • Feedings can be combined with other operations such as powering off return pumps, skimmer, etc. and then automatically turning them back on after a set amount of time.
  • Adjustable mounting clip extends up to two inches so it will work in almost every aquarium configuration.
  • Includes 10` AquaBus-mini Cable Compatible with the Apex, Apex Lite, and Apex Jr. AquaControllers.
  • Multiple feeders can be daisy-chained together so that you can have more feed for extended periods away from home or if you want to feed two different kinds of foods.

PROS
None
CONS
Noisey. Inconsistent. Worked only for two weeks. will not rotate 100% and will not retract. Very poor quality.
REVIEW
After two weeks began only rotating 3/4 of the way around. Also, will no longer retract. does not work well with flake food. In addition, it is very inconsistent in the amount of food dispersed. I travel a lot and cannot rely on this feeder.

REVIEW
Very nosiy! Seems like a 20 dollar product. On top of the poor product, mine broke after just 2 weeks of usage, feeding 1 time a day. The hopper refuse to go back in fully, and feeds 2 times when it's only suppose to feed once. Neptune has a pretty bad warranty process, after they tell me to try...Read More

inconsistent feeding / buggy

reviewerbadge
REVIEW
I hope nobody is naive enough to put this right on their tank. I recommend testing it over a bowl or something first. If you do that, you will find that it has up to 800% of error. Said differently, you'll see anywhere from 1/4 the food you expect it to output, to 4 times more than you expect. He...Read More
