Hola. In case you guys didn’t know I have a few goldfish and they get pretty hungry sometimes so yesterday I went and got a new automatic fish feeder for them. Just figured I’d share a few tips on the matter as there’s a lot of info out there.
Automatic fish feeders are used to dispense food at regular intervals and are used to replace a manual feeding. They are used to help forgetful fish owners or those who travel a lot and don’t want to have to worry about their fish getting fed. Getting them fed regularly will help to strengthen your relationship with them.
Here you will find some of the best automatic fish feeders available.
