Fish Mate FAQs
Fish feeders are automatic devices that dispense fish food into a pond on a schedule you set. They are ideal for busy families, people who work, feeding fish while away from home and ensuring your fish are fed whatever else is going on in life.
Fish mate fish feeders have a dispenser that holds dry food and a timer. Set the time(s) to suit your fish and the feeder will dispense the food on schedule. It’s as simple as that!
You should ideally look for a feeder that delivers enough food for your fish and can manage the schedule you need.
