I've been pretty happy with this feeder. The unit is easy to setup and load running on a 24 hour clock. 4 feeding times can be programmed into the unit, each of which can be set to feed with one or two spins of the hopper. The hopper itself holds a good amount of food with a small level to allow different amounts of food to be dispensed. Unfortunately, unlike some other units I've seen there is no 'low food' alarm, so it's important to keep an eye on the hopper if your using this as a sole feeding source. Although the system worked great with smaller foods, with larger foods (i.e. koi pellets), the amount of food dispensed can be a little variable. One nice feature is the removable clamp, which allows mounting of the unit onto wide rims (or other odd shaped structures) via included velcro strips. I have a crazy schedule so I have the unit running 24/7 with no problems. I simply check the hopper during weekly during water changes to make sure there is enough food present. Would recommend for anyone who needs an automatic feeder.

Overall a great product. Much easier than using messy liquid based kits and the strips seem to be just as accurate. It was nice to see a chlorine test on the strip however the lack of ammonia testing is a little annoying.

Overall a GREAT filter. I wish I had switched over years ago. I only have 2 complains, first they use green plastic for the input and output lines which is hard to hide. Glass and clear plastic parts are available but expensive. It would also be nice if the units came with about twice as much tubing. Be prepared to use every inch you get if you plan to run the filter end-to-end in a big tank. The basic setup doesn't use media baskets like some other filters. However, large media bags or even large cheesecloth bags can easily be used to contain media without a problem.

Great thermometer strip. One of the better ones I've ever used. Shows an extremely wide range 64-90*F (18-32*C). Mounts well on glass, but is flexible so it can be mounted on other surfaces as well. A MUST have to add to a python to verify the water temp during refills.

Quick and easy way to clear Ick. The most reliable treatment I've found so far. The tablets are blue and can stain the silicon and decorations in the tank.

Works great to quickly and easily remove fungus from fish. Some batches are blueish and can stain the silicon and decorations in the tank.

Not sure how they work in a nano cube, but the sponge material works great as a guard on filter intakes to keep fry, shrimp and small fish from getting sucked in.

Works great, but the treatment requires a lot of time. Overall great for treating sick fish.

A good starter CO2 generation unit. A little bulky as it hangs off the tank. I found the ladder works great but others seem to disagree. The unit will only get smelly if you leave the yeast in too long. If you change the sugar/yeast solution regularly there should be no issue. I would suggest getting a check valve for the output to avoid letting yeasty liquid into the tank.
