AquariumProOnline.com Product Review Exclusively for EheimBlog.com, featuring the Eheim 3582 Twin
Aquariums are becoming more and more popular these days, and as a result, the surrounding technology begins to evolve. The Eheim 3582 Twin is no exception.
If you are a bargain-hunter, you won’t like the near $80.00 price tag, but with this automatic feeder, keep in mind that you will be getting all $80.00 worth and then some. The feeder features two large capacity hoppers, and can handle a variety of types of food. The feeder can be programmed to dispense food up to 6 times per day, and each feeding is customizable. A manual override feature is also incorporated on this unit as well. Programming the unit is a challenging task at first, especially since the owners manual incorporates five languages per section, but once you figure out the general concept, the programming process becomes very simple. That will become almost useless information however, since the feeder stores the programmed information to memory between battery changes.
The feeder sits atop your aquarium, either with rubber feet or Velcro, both are provided. Yes, this is not the most secure method of fixing such a product to your aquarium, but due to the weight of the unit, the rubber feet held the unit in place surprisingly well, and was exceptionally secure using the provided Velcro. In addition, the unit uses batteries, rather than outlet power, reducing the chance that a power cord is moved, lessening the chance of the product tumbling onto the floor resulting in a mess – or worse, electrocution.
This product is not for people with small aquariums, or with small amounts of fish. This is due to the large size of feeding unit – on small aquariums it looks out of place, and it cannot dispense very small portions of food. However, the unit looks right at home atop an aquarium over 30 gallons. This product is most suitable for on-the-go people with larger aquariums requiring a varied diet. If your aquarium has a complex feeding schedule, and you don’t always have time to feed properly, look no further than the Eheim 3582 Twin.
