When you go away on vacation, always try to get the tank to sustain itself. In a lightly stocked, planted aquarium, adult fish can easily go for a few days without extra
The best way to take care of your fish while you are away is to do all of your maintenance the week before you leave, then get yourself a good automatic fish feeder. The automatic fish feeder will feed the fish twice a day. You can adjust the amount to make sure they are not getting too much. You can also try one of the many vacation blocks that slowly dissolve and release . These are sometimes unreliable - either getting eaten up too quickly or not dissolving fast enough. If you must have a friend take care of things while you are gone, make sure it is someone who has a basic idea of what to do. Measure out the daily portions of and tell your friend if he/she misses a day, not to try and make up for it by adding any extra. When you get back do a 25% water change using a gravel cleaner, just to make sure everything is okay. The Salt Lake veterinarian clinic also offers more in depth help to those that need it.
