Brief Description: A key component of caring for aquatic animals is regularly providing them with food, but in amounts that get consumed immediately so as not to pollute the aquarium. On top of that, most species do best when they are fed all throughout the day. Add an Automatic Feeder to your Neptune Apex Controller and feed your fish consistently, and safely, while home or away.
Notify me when "Automatic Feeding System" is re-stocked.
Why does this item ship in one or two days?
This is an item that we arrange to ship directly from the manufacturer. We do this for a couple of reasons.
1. We don't want to pay to ship the item twice. Once from the manufacturer to us and then again to you.
2. Not stocking it also reduces our inventory, warehouse and other operating costs.
This results in a lower cost to us and allows us to pass those savings along to you. On the odd occasion
when the item is not available to ship in the usual one of two days we will let you know as soon as possible.
Why does it take so long to get this item?
This item is not stocked but instead picked up from one of our suppliers as orders are received. We find it best to handle items that are updated frequently, are very specialized or just plain slow moving, in this manner.
This helps keep our operating cost low and in turn our prices lower. It will take a little longer for the item to reach you but on the otherhand, your price will be lower as a result.
What is a $ave More Item?
In an effort to lower our cost and bring you even greater savings most items are now being picked up at our suppliers on a weekly basis.

Feeds pellet or flake food in varying amounts
Apex can be set so that the AFS will feed from one time to as many times as you like throughout the day
Connects via the Apex AquaBus
“Stay-dry” system has a sealed container that extends and retracts for each feeding, keeping food dry.
The lowest setting feeds just a few grains of pellet food so multiple small feedings are possible
Allows for optimal feeding — small amounts many times a day
Feedings can be combined with other operations such as powering off return pumps, skimmer, etc.
Adjustable mounting clip extends up to two inches (or velcro can be used) so it will work in almost every configuration.
Includes 15′ AquaBus Cable
DAISY-CHAIN MULTIPLE AFS TOGETHER
The AFS connects to your Apex using a standard AquaBus cable. And, since there are two AquaBus connectors on the AFS, you can daisy-chain multiple feeders together. This is the perfect solution if you are going to be away from your tank for an extended period of time and need the extra capacity, or if you wanted to feed two different types of food.
STAY-DRY SYSTEM PREVENTS CAKING AND CLUMPING
A common issue for most aquarium autofeeders is moisture getting into the food, making it clump or cake and clogging up. The AFS has a motorized food delivery system that automatically extends and retracts into the housing for each feeding. And, the food container has a built-in gasket that seals out all moisture once it is retracted. Pretty cool, huh!?
Average rating based on 2 review(s)
Works well, no issues. I programmed 2X food drops a day, and add additional feedings remotely, while away from home.
Like it! Works great! But kinda noisy and sort of cheap feeling for the price of them..
