Going away for the weekend--feeding issues?

I have a 10g setup with some Neon Tetras, African Dwarf Frogs, and some Cories. I'm going away for the weekend Saturday-Monday night and am worried about feeding and lighting. I don't have anyone that could do this for me. Will they all be fine with two days of missed feeding and no light other than natural light? I'll be able to come back Monday night and feed them all.

I saw these slow release pellets that I might buy. They claim to release food over a period of two days. Even if they eat it all in the first day that'll be one less day they go hungry.

Any ideas/advice?

Thanks. :)

RIP Purp

They should be ok. Fish can go without food for up to a week. So i dont foresee any problems. Natural light will also be fine. Good idea to invest in a timer switch for future.

Agreed. Your fish should be just fine going that long without food. On trips like that lighting is usually more of an issue as leaving the light off the whole time can be detrimental to plants but leaving it on can cause algae explosions.
