The unit is well packaged and easy to program. You just set the current time and then up to 5 other feeding times and the amount (rotations) the device is supposed to dispense. The unit easily mounts to the side of the aquarium and gives us worry free fish feeding. Highly recommended.

This fish feeder is absolutely amazing. This allows me to set a time for them to get fed every day without me having to even be home. This makes me feel better as a fish owner and my fish seem happier also. Definitely worth the investment.

The unit is easy to program by following the instructions. I really like the manual feed mode, you can clear your feed times so when you’re home all you have to do is press the manual feed button. Works great and I highly recommend it.

Perfect for vacation feeding of fish, turtles, or other tank type animals. It rotates the holder around to dump food based on the timer settings. It would fit fish flakes, or other tiny type of food.
