NEPTUNE SYSTEMS AFS (Auto Feeder System)


Feed your fish consistently, and safely, while home or away.  A key component of caring for aquatic animals is regularly providing them with food, but in amounts that get consumed immediately so as not to pollute the aquarium. On top of that, most species do best when they are fed all throughout the day. However, overfeeding of aquariums is one of the top reasons for water pollution and tank failures.

Feeding Controls

The AFS is capable of dispensing pellet and flake food in varying amounts. The AFS is compatible with the Apex AquaControllers which can be configured to control the feeding intervals of the AFS.


Since your AFS is part of the Apex ecosystem, you can build automated feeding routines that really do all the work for you. Imagine kicking off a symphony of operations on a timed schedule, like this:

  • Turn off skimmer
  • Turn off return pump(s)
  • Set VorTech pumps to Tidal Surge
  • Dim LED lights to 40%
  • Wait 5 minutes
  • AFS feed cycle
  • AFS feed cycle
  • Wait 10 minutes
  • Turn on return pump(s)
  • Wait 10 minutes
  • Turn on skimmer
  • Turn LED lights back to normal


  • Feeds pellet or flake food in varying amounts
  • Apex can be set so that the AFS will feed from one time to as many times as you like throughout the day
  • Connects via the Apex AquaBus
  • “Stay-dry” system has a sealed container that extends and retracts for each feeding, keeping food dry.
  • The lowest setting feeds just a few grains of pellet food so multiple small feedings are possible
  • Allows for optimal feeding — small amounts many times a day
  • Feedings can be combined with other operations such as powering off return pumps, skimmer, etc.
  • Adjustable mounting clip extends up to two inches (or velcro can be used) so it will work in almost every configuration.
  • Includes 15′ AquaBus Cable
  • Bonus: FREE Sample of Crossover Diet food included!
  • Compatible with the Apex and Apex Jr. AquaControllers.
