Automatic fish feeder

Getting an Automatic Fish Feeder

If you are going on vacation or you need to leave your fish home alone for some time an automatic fish feeder provides a safe way of ensuring that your fish are fed while you are away. The feeder is mounted under the hood of your fish tank and will dispense a certain amount of food at regular intervals. Before you go away you simply determine the amount of food and the number of times your fish need to be feed.

Before you go away you should test to make sure that your feeder is working properly and dispensing an appropriate amount of food.

Despite the practical nature of an automatic fish feeder, you shouldn’t rely on it over a very long period of time. For one thing, the container of most automatic feeders aren’t airtight which means that the vitamin content of the food will decrease. Also, as with all electronic gadgets, there is the risk of a sudden malfunction. To be on the safe side you should get a friend or relative to check and make sure that everything is running smoothly.

It is advised that you don’t use the feeder every day. Ordinarily, you will need to keep an eye on your fish to make sure that they actually eat so you should only use the feeder when you are away.
