Re: Controller (was large watt heaters)
Well it really depends. I have all my aquarium lights on X10, and two
larger tanks and a incubator on temp controllers. If I found something to
feed flake to the smaller tanks(2.5) that would make me feel a lot better
about working late and traveling. Right now I have feeders on two tanks and
while it may not be the best food, they get food every day at the same time.
My biggest problem right now is cost, after that it would be making sure
the fish can't get out through the opening for the feeder.
