4 Day Holiday What about the fish?

Alright I have to go home and visit my family my wife's family etc.

I've wasted to much time to get an automatic feeder and no one sales them close enough to home.

I could get the weekend tabs.. but yuck!

Look at my tank blurb. It's currently correct. Do you think these fish can handle not being fed for 4 days!?

They should be bale to. The sharks would eat the ghost shrimp if they are stilla round but they should be fine otherwise. I think that you should feed themr eally well before you leave making sure that as little food is left over as possible. Maybe give them some extra blood worms or some other high protein food.

I've left mine alone for 5 days before. Just feed them well before you leave, they'll be all right. :D

Tanks: 40 gal FW setup, 10 gal Reef tank.
