Questions & Answers

11 Customer Questions


how many days will this last being filled? does it attach to the lid of tank or glass side?
Answer by ChewyJul 11, 2017
This feeder mounts to the aquarium hood, condensation tray or the edge of the tank in order to accurately provide 1-4 timed meals a day and serve up to 14 scheduled meals.

can this be used for feeding fish every other day
Answer by ChewyApr 07, 2018
This Feeder is not designed to skip days however, this would be possible by not filling the feed area for those days you'd like skipped.

Will this work with a closed tank? Could I just set it on top of the glass so that the opening for the food is over the finger hole in the glass?
Answer by ChewyOct 29, 2018
The F14 feeder should normally be positioned on the aquarium hood with its food exit spout positioned over the feeding hole provided in the aquarium hood. If your aquarium is not provided with such a hole you will need to cut a hole diameter 30 milimters.

Can I use this for algae tabs?
Answer by ChewyOct 13, 2017
This would work for algae tabs, depending on the size of the tabs.

Most reliable auto feeder I've found

I've tried MANY auto fish feeders for my 55 gallon fresh water tank over the years. This one is the easiest and most elegant, and it has the least problems and does the most reliable and efficient job of all. (I've tried at least 9 different feeders off and on, and I've bought at least 10 of the FishMate since I started using them non-stop in the late 1980's... replacing when I've damaged or the motor has worn out). You have to use the simple device carefully, and there are some tricks to make it work best. First, don't overfill the slots with flakes, and add a few algae pellets to the top. (Most feeders I've tried don't release the entire bundle of flakes or any at all if it is overfilled. The pellets also give the flakes more weight for releasing into tank when it is their turn.) Second, don't use large flakes that will catch and block the release -- if flakes are large, crush them a bit in the container, then scoop in a 1/4 tsp or so of smaller size flakes. Third, raise the feeder off the tank away from the direct moisture of the heated water. Any feeder will get clogged if moisture gets to the flakes and makes them swell... and they flakes can also go bad and be hard to clean off of the feeder if they get wet. (I use a “Pint Size Plastic Berry Basket” or cage, 4-Inch with open-weave for circulation, which can be set on top of the tank over the opening of the water, and balance the feeder so it hangs over and drops food into the hole for the fish.) Four, keep your feeder clean. I use a coffee brush (soft bristles) to brush the leftover flake debris or moist/hard residue before filling each time so that the wheel easily slides to rotate. Five, don't let the battery corrode - keep the battery cover on and check battery every 4-6 months - they last a long time since the feeder doesn't take much energy. I highly recommend this product.

Fish Survive

I use this feeder over weekends and breaks to feed the fish in my classroom. It always works and the fish are always alive the next day school is in session

Automatic aquarium feeder done right

This product works great. I haven’t had any problems with it working like it should. I like it when things do what they are supposed to do.

I have used for years

I have used this feeder for years. Here is what I learned. I put the "spout" over a hole in my hood that is NOT over the aerator. The food does not get moist and it does not clog this way. I do not have to add the air hose to it. I also learned that if you drop food in the inside circle, it can get caught and prevent the wheel from turning. When you fill, be clean about it, and it will spin. I have had little bottom feeder pellets get stuck in between the spinning wheel and the timer. It won't spin that way - and the fish don't get fed. It is not the easiest to figure out, but once you work out the kinks, it is very reliable - I have been through two - I have dropped both and broken them - and have used them each for years. I broke my second one last week and am ordering another. I gave it four stars because you DO have to monitor it. Usually - only at fill up. But this is in my office and I check it each day I am there. I count the holes to be sure it worked correctly over the weekend - and almost always - I have no problems. I have never killed fish because of it.

Won't work with flake food.

It does not deliver the food al at once but unpredictably over a couple hours.

Doesn’t work

So I read the reviews before buying this and figured maybe some of the bad reviews were flukes. I should have taken them seriously because now we will have to have someone come feed our fish while we are away since our fish won’t eat those week long feeder shells. We took everyone’s advice and installed the air hose to the feeder to keep the food from getting wet, but it doesn’t make a difference since the device has been installed for a few days now and has only dropped food once even though it’s set for twice per day. I had to manually turn it with my hand to get it to drop the food. The one time it did drop the food, it took hours so not all the fish got fed at one time and our bottom feeders didn’t get anything hardly. I wish I could return it because it definitely doesn’t function like it should. I wouldn’t recommend this feeder.

Fishmanhuiio

The whole doesn't even line up completely so if you have pellets they all shut off to one side of the slot and by the time it moves over it's only halfway over the whole and tell it slide to the backside of the slot and aren't drop down at the time required I had to customize by and cut the hole bigger so it would work correctly get someone to look at that for 10 seconds you'll figure it out I would never buy this product ever again

Fishies were starving

Bought this feeder hoping I wouldn't have to ask a friend feed my fish while away on a 5 night vacation. The feeder only fed them 1/5 days. Luckily none passed away.
