The auto feeders leave a lot to be desired. My husband had one and, even on the lowest setting, it completely overfed the tank.

I hire a pet nanny to take care of our tanks and dogs when we're gone. I only have her feed the tanks every 3rd day. Sometimes you can hire a vet tech or a lfs staff member to take care of your tanks.
