The Plan

Put the vibrator loaded on the fish tank, connected to the Timer, programed to turned on once a day,
when the timer turns on , the vibrator start during the capacitor time of charge (2 secs, aprox C*(R1+R2))
then it turns off ( the LED now discharge the capacitor  )

//


Se coloca el vibrador sobre la pescera, cargado con alimento
y se conecta al Temporizador Semanal, que esta programado para encenderse al mediodia todos los dias
Cuando se enciende, el vibrador funciona durante el tiempo de carga del Capacitor (2 segundos C*(R1+R2))
y luego se apaga (el condensador se descarga a travez del LED)

Nice job but can I ask what timer you used?

For my turtles, we use an off the shelf automatic fish feeder...it uses a clock mechanism to rotate the feeder once a day. I have to buy the smallest pellets to put in it for when I go away.

Yours would be a much nicer version, and allow me to use their normal food.

este un gran idea, muchos gracias...

Nice Job
