It feeds the fish, I've had my for several months with no issue. Only complaint is how hard it is to dial in small amounts of food ( like a tiny amount for 6 neon tetras )
This arrived packed well and very quickly. I also ordered plants which are doing great. Waited a couple days to set this up and had a little trouble with it as my eyesight isn't as good as it used to be. Once I checked on you tube I was able to get it set up. Programming it was pretty easy and it works very well. Not messy at all and I like the sliding door on it that let's you adjust how much food comes out. Bonus, batteries were included. May get another for the tank upstairs too.
Simple but effective. Way better than other autofeeders I have purchased.
Great so far. Have been feeding fry 2 times per day with this feeder.
Don't drop it in the tank or it will be ruined, but that point aside, Eheim makes the best feeders due to the little blower feature which pushes food out and helps keeps it dry. I like this size best as the their larger "double barrel" size (not presently carried by AQ Coop) dispenses way too much food for the average freshwater home aquarium. In general I've had good experiences over the years with Eheim products and wish AQ Coop carried replacement filter pads for the Eheim Ecco Pro series filters. As ever, AQ Coop has wonderfully fast shipping.
