- Eheim Everyday Fish Feeder
Easy and reliable By Squidfingers on 12/4/2014Squidfingers would recommend this product to a friendSetup was simple, does what it says it does. Build quality was about what I expected, nothing feels like it is going to just fall into the tank while I am away and nuke my tank. The only reason i gave it 4 stars is because I would like more mounting options.
will not work. By Lance on 11/22/2014Lance wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI used this about two months ago and it worked fine. Put it away, pulled it out because im going on vacation and the drum will not rotate to the programed time. Piece of crap. Don't buy this product. I sure will not buy another. I think Eheim should replace it for free, but I am not going to ask. Who would want another? not me!
Very good product By Conny on 11/11/2014Conny would recommend this product to a friendI use this unit to maintain a minimum amount of daily feeding requirements and to supplement while I'm away.
Would recommend this product.
Dependable By Harry on 6/9/2014Harry would recommend this product to a friendThis fish feeder has been feeding my fish 3 times a day dependably for over 6 months now. The hardest part is remembering to keep it full! You can set it for multiple times per day and varying amounts each time.
For me it holds over 2 weeks worth of food in the container.
Finally a Decent Feeder By Shawn on 4/22/2014Shawn would recommend this product to a friendAfter having tried three other auto-feeders including one from Ehiem this one seems to have nailed my requirements. It will handle small and large pellets along with flake (I mix some pellets with flake and this works great too). You can meter the amount fed with relative ease although not much precision. The door that controls the amount fed is pretty easy to knock open or closed and doesn't have positive clicks on each setting, The door on the two units I own just kind of flops between settings so an errant thumb when you set it up could easily knock it out of adjustment. Probably a QC issue on the parts from their supplier as others haven't mentioned this problem. A piece of tape has locked it down for me.
The unit is near silent and very unobtrusive when mounted above my tank. I put it directly above a power head to ensure the whole amount of food is distributed around the tank.
Other than the feed door there isn't much room for improvement as it is easy to program. Currently my fish all park just below the feeder and seem to have the timing down pretty good!
Must for accurate vacation feeding By David on 11/22/2013David would recommend this product to a friendThis is a great item, I have it feed two spins at 1100, and my apex goes into feed mode a min beforehand. Just know it doesn't float and is not water proof. Ask me how I know. Yep, just ordered another one.
Works well By Greg on 10/22/2012Greg would recommend this product to a friendI feed Spectrum mini pellets with this feeder twice a day. I found that it has to drop the food from at least 6 inches or so or the pellets float and wind up all going down the overflow instead of sinking and getting eaten. Also, the adjustable door that regulates the amount of food dispensed has a really coarse adjustment. A piece of tape helps dial it in.
Works great By Earl on 9/13/2012Earl would recommend this product to a friendI have been using this feeder for well over a year. It dispenses flake food or small pellets with a consistent day to day performance. I like that the feeder timer is easy to set, up to four times a day and up to two times each feeding. It is easy to set the time and the number of times you want to feed. Easy to adjust the feeding door to set for what you are feeding.
Love this Feeder By Quenton on 7/13/2012Quenton would recommend this product to a friendIt has many feeding times
Holds enough food
I like it By David on 3/26/2012David would recommend this product to a friendAfter some adjustments, it feeds enough to sustain my fish while going away for a long weekend. I filled it with food and tested it before putting it on the tank to make sure it wasn't feeding too much and am glad I did...Easy to adjust and after reading the instructions it was easy to set the timer. The batteries have lasted about 8 months of off and on use as well.
Positive By radiata on 3/13/2012radiata would recommend this product to a friendGreat product! I once accidentally dropped mine into the tank. I pulled it out, removed the batteries, flushed the unit with fresh tap water and let it dry out. Replaced the batteries, and it has been running ever since.
Works great By Ethan on 3/3/2012Ethan would recommend this product to a friendWorks great and I know I can rely on it when I go away for a few days. Great value for the peace of mind.

I don't know much about fish tanks but my boyfriend has a salt water tank and I want to give him as gift the automatic feeder and I wanted to ask you the following questions:
- Does this model works on salt water fish tanks?
- Is the system stable on the corner of the fish tank so doesn't fall to the other water?
- Does it work with any kind of food?
Bulk Reef Supply HI Viviana,
That sounds like a nice gift! It has no problem at all working on saltwater tanks. The feeder itself comes with a bracket that clips to the side of the tank but I have also seen plenty of people secure them on a corner with a bit of velcro. The feeder will work great with pellet food as well as flake food. As you can likely imagine it will not work with wet or frozen food though :-)
The compact EHEIM feeding unit is operated by batteries (included). The actively aerated feeding chamber dispenses dry food down to the last flake. With simple-to-use programming, you decide when the fish should be fed. Double dosage of the food is also provided in the programming. "Snacks between meals" are possible at the press of a button at any time. A warning system informs you of low battery power. Approximate capacity: 100 mL. An integrated fan and ventilation system eliminates condensation accumulation and keeps the food dry.
Deal of the Day!
