The Bottom Line

- The easy-to-fill, large feed drum will hold up to 2 weeks supply of flake or pellet food.
- Free standing or clamp mounted.
- Simple set up and operation. Just fill the drum with food, install the 2 AA batteries and it is ready to go.
- The Daily Double Automatic Fish Feeder has limited programming flexibility. The feeder will dispense either flake or pellet (1/8 inch or smaller) (or a combination of) food twice per day, at 12-hour intervals. The twelve hours begins once you insert the batteries and can only be changed by removing the batteries and starting over, again.
