If you feed flake or pellet food and have not tried the Gourmet Grinder from Innovative Marine, you need to! One of the biggest challenges when feeding fish by hand is keeping the food from traveling down the overflow, especially flake foods. One of the greatest benefits of the Gourmet Grinder is that once it is filled, you no longer need to touch the food directly while keeping precise portion control. The clear spout is also an essential feature that lets you break the water line in the tank, holding the food in the feeding tube until it sinks or is consumed and placing it by a powerhead will help broadcast the food throughout your aquarium allowing even the timidest fish to get some food. The Gourmet Grinder works best with pellet or flake foods that are under 3mm in size, and the food can be loaded into the body of the Grinder simply by unscrewing the lower portion from the upper body. Then using the clear dispensing tube, you can scoop your favorite pellet or flake into the hopper.
Adding an automatic fish feeder to your reef tank will let you feed your fish when you are on vacation, or if you have fish that require multiple feeding a day, an auto-feeder doesn’t forget. The Lifegard Intellifeed is simple to program and mount to your tanks rim. Every Intellifeed can accept batteries, or powered by an external power supply that plugs into your homes wall outlet. The first thing you will need to do is either plug in the Intellifeed to the power supply or place 4 AA batteries into the auto-feeder to power it up. After the LCD screen turns on you can set the time. After the time is set, you can then configure the feeding schedule, press and hold the SET button for 3 seconds and you are then programming feed cycle one. You can choose how many rotations of the drum you want to revolve for that period, then press the SET again, and you can choose the time that you want it to activate. Pressing the SET button after the time is set will bring you to the next feed cycle p
The Gourmet Defroster from Innovative Marine is a great way to defrost your frozen food and feed your fish at the same time. Typical feeding rings only hold food that floats where any food that sinks will just be blown around in your tank. The Gourmet Defroster lets you control the portion control with the adjustable holes built into the defrosting cups. Installing the Gourmet Defroster on your reef tank only takes a few seconds, and with the high powered neodymium magnet, you can place it almost anywhere you want around the top edge of the water line. On the sides of the defrosting cups, there are two small holes, one cup has vertical holes, and the other has two horizontal holes that allow water to flow into the cup defrosting and dispensing the food. We suggest trying both ways to see what works best for your aquarium. After you have the defroster mounted you can adjust the portion control holes by twisting the cups until the desired hole size is achieved. You can then place frozen

First things first, I have to say even if I didn't hook up the AFS feeder to the Apex, it would still be my favorite feeder. It does a great job of keeping food dry and it dispenses a predictable amount using most common sized foods. Once you pair it with the Apex, you can automatically set it up to do a single rotation of a larger volume of food or multiple rotations of small amounts of food spread out over various periods of the day. It has a clamp that goes on the side of the tank, making it really easy to mount. It also comes with two aquabus ports, like every Apex module, which you could use to daisy chain a second feeder. Setting the AFS up in Fusion: Locate the virtual outlet called 'Feeder' and click the settings gear next to it. Option: Control Type Select 'Feeder' Option: First Feeding Enter the time you'd like the first feeding to start Option: Repeat Interval Enter the amount of minutes to repeat the feeding after the first feeding Option: Drum Rotations© 2020 Bulk Reef Supply.
