A Very Handy Tool By Nate on 4/24/2015

Julian's Thing has been super helpful. I have a 30" deep tank and the provided extension makes it so I can reach the bottom and throughout the tank. It has been great for target feedings and cleaning a little bit that would have been a real pain otherwise. I really recommend getting the pack of extra tips since it makes this tool even more versatile.
A bit Rube Goldberg, but works well By Dan on 4/23/2015

Its a bit awkward, but has way more control and precision than a turkey baster.

Allows me to poof small clouds of reconstituted dried 'pods gently near the faces of my pipefish, in a more controlled manner than a turkey baster. The original hole is really tiny, so I cut off just a bit from the front, and I can use 'pods and brine shrimp. It allows me to poof a small cloud of reconstituted brine shrimp near the face of my mandarin, and after 3 poofings it has learned that the shrimp come from Julians thing. It is nice to see the mandarin actually eat one or two of the brine shrimp that come out. The pipefish maneurver themselves down-stream from the current so they get the clouds as it passes by them..

Couldn't wait for this thing to arrive after purchasing my black ray and pistol.
After using it for a week they and my file fish are eating right from the tip!

After reading the reviews, I feel this will help. I am also going to get extra tips based on the reviews I have read.

I really havent been able to make this work for my set-up. My tank is a column, so I needed to get something I could use for spot feeding. Too many tubes and extensions, and I still couldnt get it to work. Great idea, just hasnt worked for me.
Great product By Brandon on 4/20/2014

This is great for spot feeding corals for all types of tank depths. It's annoying to put together so it nice and straight. But other than that it's awesome.

I think everyone should own this. I've gone from putting my hands in my tank at least once a day to almost never. People use it for feeding, I also use it for cleaning off my rock. Definitely make sure u get the extra tips!!!
Absolutely a great item! By turbotone on MR on 1/13/2014

i was use to getting my hand wet while target feeding but this item just spoils me… i get to where i need to get without wetting my hands.. it sometimes gets stuck while injecting then builds up pressure and gives a good squirt this maybe a problem for some not to big of an issue with me maybe this problem might be alleviated if i cut the hole a lil bit bigger for the injection tip.. the syringe part where your fingers go in can bother a lil while injecting your favorite foods but again not a big deal for me.. over all i think this is a great item for a target feeder and definitely would recommend and definitely recommend getting a few replacement tips just to have for different size foods..

Great for feeding corals and even my shy fish and inverts By Mark on 11/6/2013

I use this to spot feed Reef Chili and even some thawed Brine Shrimp to my corals, Anenomes and even my extremely shy Goby. I have him trained to feed from the tip if I am careful and steady with it. There are some tricks to use it though. The instructions and videos show these.
I am purchasing a couple extra tips though so I can cut the ends of each to different openings for different materials such as Krill needing a wider opening but the smaller more cloudy feeding material for the corals needing the smaller opening like the tip is shipped.
Since I only have a 29G Biocube I did not need the extra extension that was shipped but for those with larger deeper tanks that would have been a greatly appreciated addition to the package.
This is one of those products that is a no brainer for a reef tank to feed corals and/or shy fish/inverts like Goby's and even my Peppermint shrimp that eat feed right from the tip.
Excellent. Great tool. By Lobster on 9/20/2013

The instructions are clear and well written. The component parts are sturdy and well crafted. Assembly is easy, no glue is required. It works exactly as described.

It's kind of annoying. I tend to get my fingers stuck[ I know, boo-hoo]. It will only keep you from getting wet if you're careful with it. Various turkey basters work just fine for most, but I think it's a worthy addition to any reef junkies tool-box. You will find multiple uses for it , like... [Oh. I know what I can use that for...]

I have use from my wifes baster to my own inventions which always seemed a little messy and over the top. The Thing takes a few adjustments after being put together and used but I love it as it gives me more control of hous much to feed the corals and keeps my hands out of tank. Would highly recommend this to any one that has corals to feed.

Been using Julian's thing for about a year. I love how the hypo type admin device delivers as fast or slow as I need. Alows placement of the food into places the old baster would not. For direct, accurate target feeding of your reef system, I highly reccomend Julian's Thing.
Even for target placement of aptasia control or bubble algae removal, this is a very versatile tool.

I used all three segments (requires gluing or silicone) and the thing just doesnt work at all for me. Ill try two segments but need the reach for a 200DD tank. The valve that is supposed to prevent H2O from entering the grey tubing doesnt stop any water whatsoever. Not a isolated incident as others report the same thing. Ive tried to get this thing to work and shoot out liquid from its nozzel but just cant make it work. Would not recommend at this time.
