Not something I would use

posted 6 years ago

I helped moderate a fish forum for years,and I can't begin to tell you how many "near fatal & actual deaths" came from people using these sort of products.
If you're going to be gone from a few days to up to a week or so,your best bet is to let them wait until you get home,or find a responsible person that won't overfeed the tank when you're gone.
Most fish can tolerate going without food longer than you think.
Another safe solution would be to buy aquarium plants like elodea,for the fish to nibble on(depending on what types of fish you have of course)
These feeder blocks tend to crumble away a lot faster than your told.Most times they alter your tank params greatly and either make the fish ill,or actually die.
It is one product that I really wouldn't use.

Pros: none

Cons: pollute,water,and worse,mqay kill fish

Does it even work?

posted 6 years ago

I left my beta when we went on a short vacation with one of these. I don't know if it even worked!! The tank was dirty from it and he died alittle while after! Not sure if it even fed him!

Pros: none

Cons: Is it even working?

Okay in a pinch

posted 6 years ago

These are okay for a fresh water tank if you cannot get any one to come feed the fish and you have to go away. I don't think it is the best solution to the situation, but it is better than nothing.

Pros: better than no food for fish

Cons: makes tank dirty
