So I will be away on spring break for at least 5 days.... think my fishies will be ok? I really dont want to buy an auto feeder considering they are around 40 dollars...

Just give them a good feeding right before you leave and then a good one when you come home; they'll do just fine. You'd be amazed how long fish can go w/out being harmed and w/out food!

Fish are cold blooded. They can go for much longer without food than we can.

Thanks for posting this. I was wondering the same thing. Next month I'm getting married in Cancun and will be away for 10 days for our wedding/honeymoon. They won't be going that long without food, but my fish feeder is coming to Cancun with us for 4 days for the wedding. That's about how long mine will be without food. I'm relieved to know they will be okay for that long, I'll just leave a bit of extra food for the day she comes over before she leaves for Cancun.
