    I got myself a SERA Feed A Plus Precision.

    Everything works great EXCEPT....


    My pellets stays on the top, and normally when feeding manually I would drop it in front of a pump or something to spread the food.

    The feeder is on the opposite side of my return box, so I do not loose a lot down the return.

    Is there certain pellets that will sink immediately (I tried Ocean Nutrition Formula 2)

    I thought about a funnel coming out in front of the return, but the pellets still floats on top in the funnel... :(

    Get a feeding ring. Actually feeding square, Place underneath the unit. Food falls inside and stay there until they sink.

    yep the - ocean nutrition feeding ring is like R30 and works like a charm - I use it under my Auto Feeder for flakes.

    can even take a 2L Coke bottle and cut a ring out of it. Make little holes to tie it down.
