Automatic Fish Feeders – Introduction

Today, people are more eager to keep at least one fish in their homes. Fish farming has become one of people’s favorite hobbies. But most of them often face problems when it comes to feeding the fish. People find it difficult to feed the right amount of food or to eat on time or to organize proper meals when they have to be away from their homes for days at a time. But the invention of the automatic fish feeder solved these problems.

The automatic fish feeder is designed to feed the fish automatically by releasing the right amount of food at certain time intervals. This device can be fixed to the aquarium, mostly in the upper position. This device runs on either battery or electricity. Some can use both power sources.

Usually this has a container that is divided into several small cells. The number of cells can vary from 8 to 28. In these cells you fill fish food. Some devices provide an option to fill the container with different types of food at once. You can even provide medication to the fish using this device.

The next function is the timer, through which you can set a certain time to release the fish food. There is an LCD screen that helps you set the feeding time, the number of feedings per day, and in some devices it shows the amount of fish food left in the container.

An automatic fish feeder can usually feed up to four times a day. Some of them can eat up to eight times a day. There are few who can even feed themselves for up to a month.

Some automatic fish feeders face problems with food sticking together. Sticking occurs when cool air enters the cells and moistens the food. As a result, the food clumps and sticks to the cells instead of falling into the tank when released. To deal with this problem, many automatic fish feeders have an agitator to prevent clumping.
