Actually looks like I could run only 2 54W at a time

how is that cheaper?

Zavikan, very nice but how is that cheaper (not to mention equal or less effort) to what the other poster proposed?

How do you get the Lifeguard feeder to dispense correct amount?

If the feeder works by simply shaking powder in the hopper through holes, how do you know you are dispensing the same right amount every day?

Some very nice ideas here.
