I suck at programming and apex. I don’t understand coding even as dumb as that may sound, it just does not click for me. Anyhow, I an trying to set up my AFS to feed at 10:30am and 5pm. If anyone could help me write the proper coding that would be great!

No coding required. Just click on your AFS Feeder outlet Configuration Icon and setup there.

Just change first feeding time to 10:30, drum rotations whatever you prefer, feedings per day 2, and repeat interval 390 :)

Thanks darth. But the coding you see in the picture is for that, I already used it but for some reason when I went to watch my AFS kick on at 10:30 today it did nothing. I had to manually
kick it on. So I switched it to advanced to look at the coding and make sure everything is okay, which is why I am here :)

The coding you have is correct for feeding at 10:30 AM, 5:00 PM, and 11:30 PM.
Delete the 11:30 line if you don't want to feed then.
Give it at least 30 seconds to turn on after the correct time is reached.
Make sure the feeder tile is set to AUTO and not on or off.
Make sure that your Apex clock is correct; should be a single orange time indicator on the dashboard (no blue.)
I recommend testing your feeder thoroughly over a container outside the tank before placing it over the tank.

The way you have it right now, unit will come on at 1031am not 1030am.
Again at 1701 and not 1700
And thirdly at 2331 and not 2330.
Those times are according to apex clock.
