Fish are considered low-maintenance as they don't require much attention, frequent handling or need to be taken out for a walk periodically throughout the day. While their tanks need routine maintenance, the only regular requirement fish have is to be fed. It's not just important to feed your fish on a routine basis, but it's important to provide them with the right proportion of food as too much food can lead to bloating and clog your filters and skimmers, while too little food will leave your fish hungry. This is why there are automatic fish feeders that have been developed to not only feed your fish while you're away, but some feeders can even be programmed to feed your fish consistent proportions of fish food. Whether you're planning to spend a weekend out of town or you're going on vacation, there is an assortment of automatic fish feeders available to ensure your fish are taken care of while you're away from home.
