Healthy adult fish can go a week or more without eating. I've heard more nightmare stories about auto feeders, friends feeding, feeder blocks, it can be a big problem. Feed as usual, let them be for the 5 day span, they will get by just fine. Fish are cold blooded, different metabolism, they don't need 3 meals & 2 snacks daily like kids.

One strategy for breeding many fish is an extended fast, as a replication of the dry season before the rainy season when they spawn. A good article concerning this can be found here; Dry and Rainy Seasons in the Tank by Kristian Adolfsson
