AFS Feed your fish consistently, and safely, while home or away.
A key component of caring for aquatic animals is regularly providing them with food, but in amounts that get consumed immediately so as not to pollute the aquarium. On top of that, most species do best when they are fed all throughout the day. However, overfeeding of aquariums is one of the top reasons for water pollution and tank failures.

FEED PELLET, FLAKE, OR OUR CROSSOVER DIET Of course the AFS was designed to feed almost any correctly-sized pellet or flake food.

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 AFS feed cycle Wait 10 minutes Turn on return pump(s) Wait 10 minutes Turn on skimmer Turn LED lights back to normal

A common issue for most aquarium auto feeders is moisture getting into the food, making it clump or cake and clogging up. The AFS has a motorised 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!?

The AFS connects to your Apex using a standard AquaBus cable. And, since there 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 container that extends and retracts for each feeding, keeping food dry. 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. Adjustable mounting clip extends up to two inches (or velcro can be used) so it will work in almost every configuration. Includes 15′ AquaBus Cable Bonus:
