How to Use an Eheim Everyday Fish Feeder

Updated February 21, 2017

Eheim everyday fish feeders allow you to program the times and amount of food your fish receive even when you are on vacation. This ensures your fish receive the proper amount of food at regular intervals, reducing wasted food. Wasted food sits in the bottom of the aquarium, leading to algae growth. Algae is a green growth that forms on objects in the tank. An overgrowth of algae causes the aquarium to look dirty.

Push the tab located on the bottom forward portion bottom of the fish feeder in, and pull up on the battery compartment lid.

Place one AA battery, positive (+) end up, in the back of the battery compartment. Slide a second AA battery, negative (-) end up, in the front of the battery compartment. Click the battery compartment lid over the batteries.

Push the food canister away from the control head of the fish feeder. Place a thumb on the recessed area of the food canister. Push toward the top of the canister to remove the canister lid. Set the canister lid aside.

Fill the canister to the "Full" line. Push the canister lid onto the canister. Push the assembled canister onto the control head. The canister will snap when seated. Slide the adjuster located in the recess area of the canister to the amount of food required for your fish.

Set the fish feeder on top of the aquarium with the back of the canister over the aquarium water.

Press the "Set" button. Press the plus (+) button to adjust the hours of the current time. Press the "Mode" button a second time, and press the plus (+) button to set the minutes of the current time. Press "Set" one more time to store the current time.

Press the "Mode" button to set the first feeding time. Set the hours and minutes of the feeding time as described for the current time. Press the "Mode" button a second time to enter the number of times to feed your fish per day. Press the "Set" button to save the feeding time(s).

Press the "EHEIM" button to use the feeder feed your fish manually between set feeding times.
