My tank has 2 blue hippo tangs, one clownfish, a lawnmower blenney and 3 blue-green chromis, 2 peppermint shrimp and 2 cleaner shrimp, 16 dwarf crabs, 2 turbo snails. When using pellets it over feed while the flakes seemed to underfeed.
Are you refering to the Ehiem 3581? Why couldn't you adjust the amount? Did it not work? I don't get it. I understand that flake and pellet would despense differently. Did you find an auto feeder you did like?
