How long can Apistos be left alone without being fed? Especially in a large, uncrowded aquarium. Can live food be provided that will last longer than a week or so, such as live daphnia? Has anyone had any experiences with a pet sitting service? v

I have left my fish for 10 days without a problem. Two weeks is pushing things. Having someone else feed your fish often turns out bad.

Automatic feeders usually work for weeks to months (battery lasts maybe even for a year, the food runs out first, usually). For how long of a time are you going away?

What kind of substrate do you have? If fine sand, problem solved for a while.
I´ ve kept my Apistos on a diet for a week and no problems.

Sorry to jump on this thread..........what are people's thoughts on holiday blocks. I'm away for 10 days shortly and the last time I asked someone to feed my N. Anomala, it nearly ended in tears. Thanks in advance.
