Fish Mate F14 aquarium feeder>

Product Features

  • Feeder: portion control.
  • Power Source: Battery.
  • Capacity: 14 food slots.
  • Food varieties: All.

If you have a small aquarium and need a feeder that can dispense a different food at each feeding, this offering from Fish Mate may be just what you need.

The F14 portion feeder is modeled after the popular line of automatic cat feeders. The feeder has 14 individual food slots that gradually distribute each meal over the course of one hour. The feeder has no digital display, but the pins can be set to dispense up to eight meals a day, and you can connect the unit to an aquarium compressor to keep the food dry.

The main problem with this feeder is that it needs to be refilled often. For example, if you feed your fish eight times a day, you can only use the feeder for a little over 24 hours before it needs to be refilled again.

Nevertheless, this feeder is ideal if you need a precise device that prevents overfeeding and can dispense several different types of food at once.

Advantages

  • The batch feeder is ideal for batch feeding in small aquariums, goldfish and cockerels.
  • Works with most types of fish food and can dispense a mixture of feeds.
  • Can be mounted on a bracket or stand alone on top of the aquarium.

Disadvantages

  • Only 14 food slots.
  • You need to shred large feeds to fit into the dispensing slots

The dual battery feeder from Eheim has two separate containers of fish food and can be configured to dispense different foods independently. This means you can feed your nighttime fish after lights out and other fish during the day, which is an incredibly useful feature in a mixed aquarium.

The fully programmable feeder features an LCD display, and each container can dispense up to three feeds per day in single or double portions. The unit is equipped with a convenient manual feed bypass and low battery warning. You can mount the feeder on top of the aquarium or you can mount it on top if you wish.
