    the eheim one is very good but very expensive (asked at Northlands- like r 800 or so). The AIM one is apparently but not as good as the Eheim

    I know it's not the best type - but mine has served me VERY well in the past (it's actually crappy - but it seems to work). It's the type with a round dry-food holder, with a gap on the side which can be adjusted (bigger gap or smaller gap). I know - it's an "el-cheapo".... But it has fed my fish and they survived well in the past. It turns around every 6 hours, dumping a certain amount of food into the tank (depends on the size of the gap)....

    I don't go away often enough to warrant paying R800 for a automated dry-food feeder. I prefer feeding my fish manually myself - as I also target feed my corals...
