first trip: leaving Wednesday night and returning sunday afternoon
second trip: leaving Monday afternoon and returning sunday afternoon
i take many trips where i leave Friday afternoon and return sunday afternoon and i haven't had any problems. i feed them right before i leave and the second i get back. so they go approx. 48 hours without food.
how do i feed them when i go on these longer trips if i cant get someone to come over and feed them while I'm gone?
tank #1 has 10 corys and 35 assorted tetras
tank #2 has 5 yoyo loaches
In fact, most tropical reverine fish have a month a year without much eating. Fish from lakes are different - the situation is most often more stable, that is, there is Always something to eat, but fish from rivers will manage a fortnagit without any problem. Unless it's fry,
Can you ask a friend or neighbor to come over every other day or 3 to check on your tank?
