It definitely could be a good idea to have a brother, spouse, mom or even a neighbor to pop in halfway through your trip to feed pre-made cups of food, empty a skimmer cup or in the event of a loss net out a dead fish. You also might want to consider a few "Hardy" species of inverts and keep artificial difficult ones...

Good Luck Friend
The problem I'd see with auto feeders is with being gone up to 10 days..a failure can be very bad and isn't uncommon. a 3 or 4 day trip.. maybe but not 10days

That's true. I've never had to use one but I imagine you could set it to feed a little every few days? Fish can go awhile with out eating. At least with freshwater anyway. I'm still new to SW so don't take anything I post as Fact... Just my opinions.
