maybe using little bits of these new feeder blocks would work better in a 1g.

Thanks guys but this is for a 1g tank with shrimp so it has to feed extremely accurate amounts and teh size should not be too big to overwhelm the 1g. Hey corbius can you scan it?

ok, i find it....
my scaner is hs but i have take a picture of the feeder and post a legend with it. When my scanner will be ok i give you the entire article
There is :
- a cup of cream or liegeois
- a screw
- plexiglass
- a simple mechanism of clock

there is the result.. The screw turn on is axis and mix the food to keep it dry. The screw turn with the clock enad give food one time per day
The plexi in yellow support the cup. There is a piece of plastic on the hole in the cup to adjust the quantity of food....
i think u can change the cup by a section of plastic tube for the size of your tank (1 gallon)... i think i'll make it soon et take photos to show you the result.... :-D


sorry for the quality of picture 2 my camera is not very good
bye from France

there are many $10-$20 battery feeders that work on the same principle, and either have sectional hoppers for you to assemble each days portion, or an adjustable aperture to dose food from a common hopper. I have a typical one and it's really small, maybe 2.5x2.5x2.5" when clipped to the side of my tank.
