AquaChef Feeder 3" x 5-1/4" x 3" high
The AquaChef feeder is great, it eliminates those block feeders .
I travel and used those block feeders that claim to dispense food while you are away and cloud up the tank.
The AquaChef feeder is great, it delivers the amount of food I want when I want it dispensed into the tank while I am away for short & long periods of time.
Highly recommend its use !!

I have two of these and one Eheim feed air one running right now. The Eheim doesn't come with an optional clamp, and the hole is in the side of the short wide drum, so the food in the back doesn't get to the hole. This feeder has at tall skinny drum with a hole in the center. All food can get to the hole. All of these feeders work best with what I like to call "The Pringles of fish food" that is tetra crisps. These are uniform shaped food that are all identical little round discs. It works and the output is adjustable. I don't understand why the Eheim costs so much more. I wouldn't think of getting a feeder without a clock. I had one like that and I never knew what time it was supposed to go off. Eheim has a fan, this one has a door. Neither have wet food problems.

VERY good unit but has a few details left out of info
I loved this unit. Its incredibly fluid. That said there is a few obvious issues, Number one being that getting even feeding of diffirent sized food is an issue. Another is that for a rimmed tank you have to cut room on your lid for it. And the kicker: Its VERY water suseptable, Not being water proof I 100% understand however because of the rim on my tank (even cut mostly off for it to mount) it was loose and fell into my tank. Wasnt in long but it didnt its damage. 80-85% of the display was shot even after drying. Took it apart cleaned up the salt on the circuit board etc and it got worse. Would blame myself however I have plenty of experience with electronics being engaged to an IT tech and being taught a lot by him over the years. overall though I would certainly love a new one if i didnt need the money from returning it. Makes life SO much easier. Oh and be carefully with the flap on the drum that drops open when it rotates mine broke off.

Works great for the price.
Kinda odd way to get food drum off but just pull.
