The EHEIM auto feeder offers a simple, inexpensive way to feed your fish automatically. The feeder can easily be programmed to feed multiple times a day, dispensing the exact right amount of food at the exact right time. A simple push of a button also allows for “snacks” at any time. The feeder is compatible with a wide variety of flakes and pellets. Whether you are away on vacation or just want to ensure that your fish are fed at the same time everyday, an automatic fish feeder is a useful automation tool for your reef tank. Remember, well fed fish are far less likely to nip at corals and an auto feeder can also reduce the likelihood of overfeeding and the accompanying rise in nutrients.
Features of this feeder include an integrated mounting bracket for any open top aquarium, splash proof keys and a low battery warning. EHEIM feeders can also be used on tanks with screen lids, provided appropriate cutouts are made for the bracket and feeder.
For hobbyists who have their pumps on timers or connected to a system such as a Neptune, it is easy to program the EHEIM feeder to dispense food when the pumps are off to make it easier for fish to feed. Please note however, that they are not directly compatible with the Neptune system. The feeding timer will need to be set to coincide with the pumps being turned off but this is quite easily done.
For hobbyists looking for a simple and budget friendly way to automate fish feeding, the EHEIM automatic fish feeder is a great choice.
