As described: Feeder

Worked well over the 2 week vacation, although my daughter had to refill the tanks once during that time (I have a 150 gallon aquarium with large feeders!). I turned it off when we got back because I love it when fish associate me with food and come up to greet me when I approach the tank. Just two weeks of automatic feeding made them less receptive to me. With this device you can vary the time and amount of feeding. Overall I am very happy with my purchase.

Reality Battery life

I've been away for a week I have a 125 gallon and I filled it with cereal, it worked great. If you use fine pellet feed it will throw out too much, best to check. But I love this company, I have a filter, it works great, so I decided to try the feeder, it works great. The battery showed more than half full after 9 days of use, I haven't figured out how to turn it off. I don't think there is a power switch so I just take out the batteries. Hope that helps.

Pros
  • Pleasant
Cons
  • Some difficulties

Universal Fish and Aquatic Feeder

I feed 15 large tropical fish in a 150 gallon aquarium. Regular sized flakes pass through the snails fine, but adding a small pellet or shrimp will help. It takes a few "feeds" for the flakes to come through and fill the tank with food. I put it on inverted plastic bottles to prevent the food from floating to the surface and ending up in my sump before the fish eat it. There are up to six feeds per day, each with up to nine feed volume settings. The feeders are large enough to feed 6 times aโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Beautiful Packaging
Cons
  • Very Expensive

Great accessory. Just watch the dosage.

This saved my life on vacation. Although I have some opinions. Even at the lowest level, it gives out a huge amount of food. I have 30G and 24G so not many fish. This is too much food for my small aquariums. An improvement would be to allow a smaller dosed amount. Also, it would be nice to have an expanded program. The minimum he will dose is 1 time per day. It would be nice if you could set it to output every other day or every three days. Maybe there are such options or it can be configuredโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Confident
Cons
  • Weak

It takes time to set up. but works great after fine tuning!

Although I had to get creative with the setup, this feeder works great! It was bought mainly for our vacation. Before we left, we left the little guys all alone. (I highly recommend that too) The number of servings is adjustable, as is the frequency of feedings. The only issue we had wasn't with the device itself, just the placement of the device due to its size. Unfortunately we didn't have enough space to mount the device on top of the aquarium so that it was over the hole. So we had to getโ€ฆ

Pros
  • GOLS certified
Cons
  • Marketable

Does the job with German design

Okay, this thing works fine, but damn "manual" isn't for the average person. I had to read it multiple times by referring to the chart (many pages turned here folks) to set it up. There are also no restrictions on how you position this thing on your tank. I had to remove one of the glass lids on my 55 gallon tank so I could make sure the pellets got in properly. I have seven Gold Severum and the medium granules I use work great. This feeder has two compartments for them and can take turnsโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Absolutely amazing!
Cons
  • Periodicity

Changed for extended days.

I have tried many feeders over the years but have mostly been unhappy with uneven portion sizes due to the rotating drum running out of feed. Although this Eheim Twin Feeder doesn't like big flakes and clogs easily, I've found Tetra Crisps to work perfectly because they're smaller and more uniform in size. Unfortunately we like to winter in Florida and this feeder only lasts 4 or 5 days (at best) with 3 feedings a day for my big hungry fish. I have designed an extra reservoir that sits on topโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Excellent overall performance
Cons
  • Nothing here

Four time Eheim user

I have purchased four Eheim double feeders over the years. As you would expect from German engineers, the device is built with integrity and reliability. The instruction manual consists of 61 pages (see picture) and is illustrated with black and white photos in several languages. Imagine you are back in college and making notes about this professor who started school at the age of five and never left. It's not an easy-to-use feeder, despite Eheim's considerable effort to break things downโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Hands free
Cons
  • Quality

Versatile and reliable automatic feeder

Eheim TWIN battery automatic feeder overview The automatic feeder used in a large aquarium has stopped working for some time and had to be replaced before leaving. . The residents are bottom feeders and some cichlids, so I considered buying two automatic feeders - one for bottom feeders and the other for cichlid feeders. While searching I came across this double feeder that got good reviews so I ordered it. It arrived on time and was well packaged by the sender. The packaging of the device isโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Good product for the price
Cons
  • Updates
