What are the Advantages of an Automatic Pond Fish Feeder?
1. A Weight off Your Mind
Remembering things is hard enough with all the things you have to juggle every day.
Stressing out about whether or not you fed the fish?
Not so great.
And let’s face it:
Some days you just don’t have the time or desire to trek out to the pond for the daily feeding.
With an auto feeder, you can spend more time watching and enjoying your fish…
… And less time slaving over them.
Even if it doesn’t take that much time to feed them just once, it can surprisingly start to add up day after day.
And the more times your fish need to be fed each day, that number can double or triple.
2. Set it & Forget it
Most autofeeders allow you to select exactly the amount to dispense at each feeding.
You can customize the portions based on the number, age and size of the fish.
And with multiple feedings per day…
… You create a highly tailored diet plan for your pond’s inhabitants.
No need to measure out the food each time!
The machine does it for you.

3. Ideal for Vacation & Travel
Travelling is stressful.
So to take one more thing off your plate:
Say you need to go somewhere for a vacation or do a lot of traveling for your job.
You can save money by not hiring someone to take care of your pond each time.
And a good auto feeder will do the job precisely each time.
Who doesn’t love peace of mind 🙂
The best part?
Many people discover they can take a permanent vacation from feeding their fish when they get back!
- Be sure to try out the auto feeder during a “test run” before leaving it unattended.
- Ensure wild animals or ranging pets can’t get into the food storage area of your unit. This might take some creativity with some pond auto feeder styles.
- Most brands work best with pellets or sticks rather than flake food.
- Larger ponds work best with dispensers that throw the food a greater distance than simply dropping it into the water below. This usually requires a motor apparatus.
Wrapping It All Up
Finding the right automatic pond feeder can be a total game changer for pond owners.
The key is to find the model that works best for your setup.
