this product doesn't say how long the feeding takes up, 1week, 2 weeks or longer, not recoomend for sure if you are away from home more than 2weeks.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Doesn't Work

I bought this feeder because it looked reliable and had good reviews. I tested it the night before to make sure it worked. It worked great. I took the batteries out for the night so that it wouldn’t spew fish food all over my dresser. The next morning when I put the batteries back in, it wouldn't work. It wouldn't start, the lights wouldn't turn on, nothing. All in all, try it out before you rely on it, and keep your receipt.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Although a bit more expensive than other product available, the Hydro feeder is much easier to program and use. Also, it's food resevoir is 2X as large.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Not accurately described on Petco website

Website says "for up to 2 feedings a day". It is capable of one, two or three feedings per day. The photo implies a clock function. In fact the "time" is "set" when the batteries are initially installed. No readout. The feeding intervals are preset from the battery install time. If one wants to feed every twelve hours it cannot be done unless you select one auto feed per day and then do a manual feed twelve hours later. The unit is quite noisy when it feeds.
I owned the preceding version of this feeder for many years and was very happy with it as it had a real digital LED clock and feeding schedule display and could be customized. Unfortunately it fell into the salt water and that finished it off.
This new version seems as well made and does its job--the fish just will have to accustom themselves to a new eating schedule!
I would recommend this to a friend!
