To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I received 6 pieces with no instructions and had to look back at the product in my orders to review what it looked like to assemble it and try to use it. They send you two, which is awesome. Once I figured out how to assemble it, I tested it with a small tea cup and water. Seemed to work really well and I was excited. Then, when I used it in the tank it would work fairly well, but if the handle was a little submerged in water it wouldn't release. The other issue is the tube keeps popping off from the handle into the tank and I have to fish it out, which is annoying. It’s an awesome concept but needs some tweaks. It’s possible I didn’t assemble it correctly and I’m hoping the company sends my some helpful tips or uses this review as a way to work out the kinks. That is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. It works better than everything else I’ve used to directly feed fish and corals. Thanks!
Went together easy. Perfect for getting food down to coral deep in tank. It does have a design issue. The compression fitting that holds tube in place is not near long enough to hold tube securely. It kept slipping out of fitting. My fix was to use a couple of heat shrink tubes to overwrap the tube and compression nut. Have not had the tube slip out again.
This is really easy to use and works great. I dont have to get my hands wet/stick them in the tank when I target feed. Im giving it 4 stars cause pellet food tends to come out of the device on its own when trying to target feed.
4.0 out of 5 starsWorks Well, But Probably Doesn't Need to have Multiple Methods of Feeding

I sometimes have to spot feed my coral and anemones and found that this was a great tool to help. I have used it with Reef Roids with great success. I mix up the formula in the tank water (in a cup of course) and use the coral feeder to pull from the cup. It works very well to this point.
Where it gets a little over the top, in my opinion, is having too many different ways to discharge it into the area of the coral. I prefer it to be more syringe-like, and therefore use the same mechanism (in reverse) of how I put the food into the device. I guess for larger tanks maybe the press to release might work better? I am not sure given that everything is in the same general area and you can control what is expressed from the syringe type function more so than the consistent - yet maybe too much or too little - button of sorts.
Anyhow, it does work very well and so far the corals have opened up and I am sure appreciate being spot fed to avoid a waste of food and of course keep the food from moving away from them either into the filter or grabbed by the fish in the tank. Of course I recommend using this with the pump NOT running, which I do, so there is that as well.
Great tool. Great to have for being efficient with ensuring that your coral feedings are maximized.
