Electronic Fish Feeder

Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

Hi tags,

I've never built an automatic fish feeder.

Fish can easily survive in an aquarium for a period of two months without being fed.

If you know you're staying out of house for a longer period just feed a bit more for about one month. This allows the fish to put up extra weight which they can use during your absence.

Additionally you might think about using Guppies to breed fresh food for the others.  ;D

An easy way for an automatic feeder would be a kind of caroussel with the daily food rations contained in small chambers. Kick the caroussel every 24 or 48 hours with a solenoid and a sprocket similar to the one used in old clocks or hand operated hoists (allows movement in one direction only).
