"definitely not worth $38"
I ordered this online based on the 3 reviews on this site and must admit it wasn't easy to find. I first tried to set it up, loaded it with food, then the top just fell off before I secured it in place, dumping a ton of food into the tank. So I decided to retry this morning. After I used some duct tape to secure the cover, I reloaded, then set it for what I thought would be the "correct" amount of pelleted food for my 55 gallon tank (the "halfway" setting), and it proceeded to dump too much into my tank. So I fiddled with it again (tested it in my hand) and found that only the first three "click" settings dispense a small amount of food, and every other setting dispenses WAY too much, and they're not consistent!! Sometimes, one setting dispenses more, sometimes less. I bought it so that the people watching my house during vacation don't have to feed these fish, but I just don't trust this thing NOT to screw up while I'm gone. It's going back tomorrow. Anything that requires duct tape right out of the box isn't worth my money.

"Excellent Product"
This product is manufactured by Hydor of Italy. I currently use one on each of my two large tanks every day so that my fish get fed twice daily at the same time every day. I've had them for over two years and still on the original batteries. I don't completely fill them with food (flake and small pellets) however I add it every two weeks or so however if I did I could see it lasting three or four weeks. My fish know the sound of the feeder means food however they still know that when I approach, it means treats. I don't recommend leaving your pets for a long period of time however if you have to this is a great product.

"Easy to use and reliable"
Used this feeder when I went away for Christmas break, it worked really well, but that 30 days worth of food claim is B.S. unless you have only a couple of small fish. My six juvi cichlids barely made it the two weeks, in fact when I got back they were out of food. If you're going for an extended length of time learn from my mistake and cut back on their daily feedings. Better a little food everyday than plenty followed by none... ;)
