    Everyone has their own methods, but I never turn any of my pumps down when I'm feeding. If you have non-aggressive feeding fish, you may require it though.

    I don't change anything. Ring is enough for me.

    Long as the pellets don't fall over the overflow is all I care. My fishes will take care of the rest.

    I haven't fed with my autofeeder (I have the Neptune one) in quite some time (I've gone to frozen (LRS)), but I had been shutting off my return pump and such since the feeder sits on top of my overflow box. I think when I go back to feeding from it I'll simply get a feeding ring. I don't know if I like the idea of the continued on/off wear on the pumps. It was cool to be able to control all that with the Apex, but that novelty has worn off now.

    What's everyone's favorite feeding ring?

    I would just build one since I’ve got extra acrylic laying around.
