I have to contridict the coulpe days thing as all tropical fish have a 14 day internal food reserve but the result for going without feedin them that long is scronny slightly unhealthy fish so 14 days = 2 weeks also i personaly would not go to this extreme but at least a week could help as not to worry and i have the 14 day as a fact in a book and it is permantly burned in my head so i have proof to back me up written down also i know what book it is so yeah.... 14 days max reserve but go a week at max to keep healthy reserve supply and prevent starving also to cut down overfeeding and this should also help control anymore snail reproduction and population hopfully they die off bit by bit by doing this hope this helps
