baby sitter needed in greater vancouver area! please help!!!

Hi everybody, I am a fish enthusiast in Vancouver.
I will be on a vacation out of Canada for around 2 month and I think an auto feeder just isn't gonna be fair to my fish. As a result, I am looking for someone to take care of my fish during the 2 month.
I don't actually have a lot of fish. Only 2 adult discus, 3 clown loaches, 1 sae, and 5 tetras.

Please help! ~~~~ I am leaving by the end of the month~

$$ could be awarded if required.

If you do it right, you can have someone you actually trust do it for you. (Non aquariust type.) I say this, because putting an open plea on a public forum to have a stranger come to your house is fraught with negitive vibes. (Even though, everyone on this forum as a certified *Nice* guy/gal!)

A good friend would take the time to listen to the 20 minutes of instruction, and well porportioned out food in envelopes/baggies will probably work. Put enough chow for one week in one container and have them divide it up for a weeks worth etc. Same for maybe some KNO3/flourish whatever.

Good luck!

inviteing a stragnger into your house over the internet is likly not a good idea. You must be a pretty trusting person to do that. I would never in a million years ask someone over the internet to come to my house and wach my fish. I live in vancouver bc, as well.. You say you have discus fish. Arn't you constintly fighting your water conditions. The water up here is vbery soft and acidic, it hasd caused my many peoblems.. what about u?
