I got some weeks chance left. At the moment got only some yoyo loaches and guppies in my aquarium. You can take a look at YouTube - My new aquarium [added guppies and yoyo loaches]
Put the lights on a timer (ten bucks at lowe's). Temperature should remain stable if heater is working properly.
Fish will be fine for a week without food.
Would Feed the fish regular amount of food and then perform water change just before I left.
Would perform another water change upon my return and feed fish regular amount of food.
Guppies and loaches will snack on pieces of plant matter and will be fine.
