Does anyone has used any feeder ring in your tank? I would like to combine this with my auto feeder when I am not at home to avoid pellets going all over the place and into my overflow. I have seen some basic ones in Amazon and some others made of plastic as cup shaped.

Any experiences with these products and feeder ring recommendations?

@Avengerx77 TLF just makes one ring. I would be very surprised if it did rust. If it did rust you would have a free magnet ring. Contact the company and they will have to give you a new one. Just be careful putting it together and it won’t break.

When I set up my aquarium I checked the different rings. I decided to DIY it until I figured out what I wanted, but that works so well that I never bothered to buy one. Just use some 1/4” RODI tubing with an air line coupling and a suction cup.

Ok, will give it a look and see if it works for me

Very nice, unfortunately I pretty much suck at DIY lol so that's why I was asking.
The eheim feeding station looks good, both frozen and pellets
Yes, I was looking at that one, wondering how quick the pellets will sink instead of fish going to the top to get it. I know the clownfish will not have an issue, but my royal gramma does not go all the way up when feeding. The other thing is that a lot of reviews says the plastic arrived broken.

Was looking for something like this from Amazon
I used them in the past and they were a bit rubbish as they didn’t level right in the water, also couldn’t handle the waves imo
