You can set up to 4 times of day to advance the circle, but each section is the equivalent of one days feeding. So if you feed something larger it will only drop once the whole space is opened. This feeder is rather poor for feeding flakes, since they can easily lay flat and not get slid forward. Which makes the feeder a bit messy. This feeder is exceptional in one particular area though! It has compartments large enough for feeding sinking wafers! Which means that a feed of partial pellets and wafer/s is possible to do. Overall I'd say this is a decent feeder for short term vacations (Max days for feed is 14). It excels when it comes to the ability to add a varied diet and the ability to drop sinking wafers.

Overall this is a good feeder, you can program multiple different feeding schedules (twice a day for example) fairly simply. DO take the time to test repeatedly as just like any tumbler style feeder the exact quantity can vary. The design weight can be a bit lopsided depending on the food you feed, so I encourage you to use the velcro style attachments to fasten it down.

OK so the one we had was the red volcano decoration one. And yes it does look kind of cool in the tank and yes it does provide some aeration. However, the build design means you have 2 cords and 1 airtube going into your tank to power the light and pump. It also clogs easily and seems to be particularly attractive to snails as a place to get into, get stuck in and die. :scry: This means every weekly water change I'm cleaning this one decoration. If the bf wasn't so attached to it... I'd rather toss the thing across the room. It is also the loudest equipment in my set up. All air pumps tend to be a bit noisy so its not outrageous but it is definitely audible.

This is a great medication to have on hand and has been recommended as a good preventative to use in your QT tank. One side effect is you may see some extraordinary poos from your fish after you first use it.

While the kit does seem to work and the instructions are easy to follow, I ran into issues reading the test cards and have found numerous reports of other users as well having mislabeled test cards in their kits. (Freshwater saying Saltwater, Both labeled Saltwater although obvious different color charts, etc.) This makes is rather confusing for the end user.

Very reasonably priced light for the quality you get. Very bright and illuminating on my tank. While it doesn't have a fan, it does have a vented design that seems to work very well at keeping the fixture from becoming hot. You can buy this design as 2 or 4 bulbs. Keep in mind that the standard shipment style is one daylight and one blue, so if you are wanting double daylight you will need to purchase a second daylight bulb. About the Cons: Because it is a completely sealed fixture, to replace the bulbs you have to unscrew the entire end cap and pull the bulbs out of the housing to replace. Not hard, but not your average "screw in a lightbulb" type change. The cord for the fixture is at the end of the light, not the back, so this can cause issues with someone that uses a tight fitting canopy.

Cleared up an ich outbreak I had. Instructions were 2 capfuls per 10 gallon, (roughly 1mL per gallon) every other day for 3 days which would use up the average 2oz bottle in one treatment of a 60 gallon tank. Probably not the most economical for people with large tanks.

Used this in my freshwater tank to keep my phosphates in check (well water). Phosphates testing indicates that this stuff clearly works as intended. I found that one pouch works much longer than the proscribed 3 month schedule they advise.

Upgraded to the 405 when we bought a 65G tank and its been very solid and reliable. If you take the time to get the air out of the filter when you set it up and after cleaning its very quiet. There is quite a bit of media room, so adding additional media is simple and easy. Hoses are a bit stiff and are ribbed, which after cleaning the filter and restarting you will see a significant amount of gunk buildup come from your hoses if you do not clean them as well.

The gravel guard at the top of the siphon tube would certainly be effective in preventing fish from being accidentally sucked up, as it will also catch plant leaves and other debris. However, this does mean if you have a particularly messy tank, you will want to clear that portion of your vac by starting the water return over your waste area. Have used this vac repeatedly with excellent results.
