7 day holiday, what to do?


New Member
Hi everyone!

I'm going away for a week soon with my family and I'm concerned about leaving my fish, I have a fairly young tank with some very small ember tetras and pygmy corys and 2 apistos (less than 1.5" long).

I've never left my aquarium for more than a day before so I'm essentially asking if anyone wotj mre experience could tell me what I should plan in advance and what to expect?

I can get someone to feed once or twice while I'm away and I will pre prepare the portions if I do choose to do this to prevent overfeeding.

If only for seven days the fish will be fine without food. Much more dangerous letting someone else feed them.
