It is healthy for people to have emotional attachments. That is why it is important for people to surround themselves with pets and also plants if possible. I have a cat and two dogs and for some reason, I decided to get a pet fish as well. Being new to taking care of fish, I had to go to the pet store and ask for advice from a friend or two. That is why I decided to share my new found knowledge and write this review.
Factors to consider before purchasing automatic fish feeders:
- Number of feedings per day: This is important because it helps you with your fish feeding schedule. The number of feeds goes a long way in determining the type of automatic fish feeder you choose. At the end of the day, it’s important to pick a fish feeder which can help you accomplish the desired number of feeds per day.
- Number of actual feeding days: If you tend to travel a lot or plan on going away, you might want to consider a fish feeder that will cater to your fish for the right amount of days till you come back. Of course, a large size will ensure that your fish remain in a tip-top condition even when you travel which means that you won’t have to worry about them while in a journey.
- Capacity: Ensure that the automatic fish feeder can handle the amount of food that will be enough for your fish.
- The price: If you want to have something incredible, be sure to take note of the price. For the best results, I suggest that you pick a fish feeder whose price is considerable and convenient. However, don’t pick those half-baked and cheap knockoffs since that will highly affect the overall performance.
