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!?
 
Build complex feeding routines with the Apex and the AFS
 
Since your AFS is part of the Apex ecosystem, you can build automated feeding routines that really do all the work for you. Imagine kicking off a symphony of operations on a timed schedule, like this:
 
Turn off skimmer
Turn off return pump(s)
Set VorTech pumps to Tidal Surge
Dim LED lights to 40%
Wait 5 minutes
AFS feed cycle x 2
Wait 10 minutes
Turn on return pump(s)
Wait 10 minutes
Turn on skimmer
Turn LED lights back to normal
 
Daisy-chain multiple AFS together
 
The AFS connects to your Apex using a standard AquaBus cable. And, since their 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.
 
Features of the Automatic Feeding System – AFS:
 
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 food container that extends and retracts for each feeding. This keeps food dry and prevents clumping.
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. and then automatically turning them back on after a set amount of time.
Adjustable mounting clip extends up to two inches (or velcro can be used) so it will work in almost every aquarium configuration.
Includes 15′ AquaBus Cable
Compatible with the Apex, Apex Lite, and Apex Jr. AquaControllers.
Free food sample not included.

This customer purchased the item at our site.
I agree with everything Lane said above. Great product, super easy, but a touch loud. So versatile when combined with your apex, and I easily set up a completed program which I refined overtime to suit my needs. And my fish totally associate the sound with feeding time, and the all race up to the top of the tank and wait for pellet heaven to rain down.

Advantages: Easy to use, and super programmable.

Disadvantages: Price
front load feeding canister could use a rework, as you need to pull it out from the front to reload it or to adjust the feed amount, but this also serves as the access door, so occasionally the access door will pop off while you are trying to pull the canister out... resulting in a bunch of food dumping in your aquarium. The obvious solution to this though is to wait until it is almost empty before refilling or remove the feeder from your tank before attempting to remove the canister.

So happy with this purchase. While my apex took me a bit to figure out this feeder is just plug and play. I have a camera on my tank and get a big kick out of being able to feed my tank from my phone anywhere in the world. It’s very adjustable so you don’t over feed and came with a sample of Neptune crossover pellets which my fish seem to love.

Advantages: Plug and play
Very adjustable
Can feed with a swipe on my phone

Disadvantages: If I had to stretch for one I’d say it’s loud but I think my fish are starting to associate the loud noise with food being dropped from the sky
