I personally enjoy feeding my fish manually and like watching them eat. I suppose the auto feeder would be good on a different setup than mine of you were the type to have timers on your lights, Co2
, etc... My nano cube has an integrated lid that makes it esthetically unappealing to have the feeder mounted on top. I just do it occasionally to keep my fish fed if I go away for long trips. It really came in handy when I left overseas for a month long trip. I just set a light on an auto timer to work in concert with the Eheim feeder. I'll have to admit, even at the lowest setting, I had to do an immediate PWC
when I returned. Looked like a small oil slick on the surface of the water, probably from lots of unconsumed flakes. But hey, all my fish survived and didn't start cannibalizing each other....LOL
Features that I really like about this feeder is that you can set multiple feed times. You can set it to feed like twice a minute apart in on feeding. And it has a built in fan to help with moisture.
LMK if you have any other questions. Hope this helps.
