Going on a long vaccation,and worried about your fish?
Well to help you here is an introductive video on automatic fish feeders by daryl warren and ataz aquarist.If you are going away and are getting a feeder or not it is best to run a trial period of your plan before you leave to make sure it is working the way you want and then you can make any necessary changes while you are still home. Tips: make sure the times, quantity and frequency are set correctly and no big flakes will block the exit, don't pack the food it should be fluffy, make sure the feeder is not placed above an airstone or the moisture from bubbles rising could wet the food causing clumping and jamming.The amount the autofeeder gives is controlled by how much the slider on the feeder is opened, and what size of flake or pellet is inside, and how often and how many spins it is set for each feed. In a110 gallon tanks it is set wide open on small flakes and spins 2 times for each of the three daily feedings and will last almost a week. In a 40 gallon tanks it is wide open on small flakes and set to feed 3 times but only spin once each feed so it lasts almost 2 weeks. Your fish should consume all of the food released within the first minute or less so no food is hitting the bottom and clouding the water. Over feeding occurs when more food than the fish can eat in the first minute is released and food is hitting the bottom. It is a trial and error to test the amount released vs the amount you usually feed by hand.The Eheim has an advantage since it pauses between spins when its set to spin more than once, giving the fish a chance to eat some food before it spins again.
