Automatic Feeder for large acrylic tank

I have been shopping around for an auto feeder for my large acrylic tank. My acrylic tank has a small cutout for feeding on the top, otherwise there is no other place to put one.

All the feeders I have seen seem to be the type that clip on to the back or side of the tank. Are there any models that I can just plainly sit over the opening an let the food drop down through the opening?

Thanks,
Pete R.

Thanks. Did you specify this one particular model because you know for sure that it can sit over and opening as I mentioned in my post? I can't tell from the description.

I have this Nutrafin feeder. It does sit over an opening. The right half of the feeder houses the motor that sits on a flat surface. The left circular half is the container for the food which must hang over the water and it spins round 360 degrees to spill the food out.
