San Diego, California – inD creations is excited to announce the launch of the aF⁴, an automatic frozen fish food feeder that will allow aquarium hobbyists to feed high-quality frozen fish food all day long, on a schedule or on-demand. The tentative launch date for our crowdfunding campaign launch is late October, with a highly confident ship date within one year of securing funding.

inD Creations believes the aF⁴ will greatly improve the health of our fish, as they will be able to graze on high-quality frozen fish food all day long, just like in nature. The aF⁴ will allow aquarium hobbyists to go out of town without worry that their fish are getting enough to eat.

The aF⁴ is a simple yet novel design consisting of an insulated unit for storing and dispensing food, a cooling unit to keep the food frozen, and an interchangeable carousel to allow either seven full, 10 half, or 20 quarter cubes to be fed. The device measures under 4” square at the base and under 3.5” tall. Scheduling is programmed using a control unit similar to those found on DC pumps and skimmers. Utility patents are pending.

    I love this idea! I have used auto feeders before and have had trouble finding good floating pellets. I don’t like when they drop and a lot of the food heads to the bottom into the plants. When I manually feed, I do it slowly so that there is no waste. This product opens many doors. Thank you for the innovation!
