Only thing is I will be leaving in about five weeks I will be out of town for a bout a month. I will be taking him with me but leaving his tank here, so I don't know what will happen to it while Im gone. Without waterchanges and without the temperature being controlled the tank should finish cycling while im gone right?
Yes, that may be advantageous. If there are live plants, keep the lights on/off via a timer. The biological system will continue in slow motion perhaps, but it will remain. Some snails might help if you have any, the small ones like pond snails or Malaysian Livebearing.
I have a 20g tank that is planted with spare plants that I keep running as normal, but it has no fish. I use it for my quarantine for new fish, and I never have problems putting a bunch of new fish in after the tank has been fishless for months.
