Once you get the feeding amount dialed in it works like a charm. The number of feedings per day also very easy to set up. If you are using flakes (especially) would strongly suggest that you hook up to an air supply as humidity and condensation are controlled thereby keeping food dry and allowing for dispensing as expected.

I needed some way to feed my fish because I had a sudden out of town trip with the Army. I ordered these next day and they did the job great. Thanks for shipping them so fast.

I bought the Ekomixo Automatic Feeder to replace one that stopped working. It is easy to set up and seems to work well.

Rated 4 out of 5 Gets the job done.
I am a college student with a 10-gallon aquarium housing 9 fish. We have a very long winter break (over a month) and I was unable to a) transport my fish home or b) find anyone to take care of them. My solution was the Ekomixo feeder. Its settings are pretty basic, and seem to be adequate for the casual fish-owner. It dispensed food the entire month without running out of batteries, which was great, and can be set to dispense food once, twice, or three times a day.
There were a couple of minor inconveniences - 1) You cannot set a time in advance. For example, if I was setting it up at 5:30pm but wanted it to dispense the first feeding at 7:30am, I would just have to wait until the next morning to push the requisite buttons. 2) My aquarium doesn't have a lid/hood, and the mounting materials provided (i.e. an adhesive strip) weren't really suitable for the edge of a tank. I ended up fashioning a cardboard shelf next to my tank, which seemed to work out fine. Again, only a bit of extra work.
All in all, however, I would recommend this product: it does what it is intended to do, and does it reliably for a fairly low price.
