    Anyone know of an automatic feeder that will dispense small pellets. I want to feed some NLS small fish formula and while testing on a Current Aquachef set on the lowest dispensing amount, it dispensed about 2+ tablespoon worth of pellets. That's a bit too much for me. Looking for something that will dispense like a pinch of it.

    According to NLS website, the pellets are 0.5mm for the small fish formula (the label looks different than the one that I have), but that's the one that corresponds to the small fish formula.

    Let me know if you're using a feeder or know of a feeder that will dispense tiny pellets at a reasonable amount.

    I use a FeedAir but it also tends to dump quite a bit when using pellets. (I usually feed a mix of pellets and small flakes). Let use know if you find something better.

    Second on the Eheim. You can tape over part of the opening to refine the amount dispensed if necessary.

    Rich FTW! Taped 90% of the door that swings when it rotates. Seems to be doing the trick. :p
