Leaving for 4 days....will it hurt my tank???

Hey all,
I am going to be away from my tank for 4 days. Will this be devastating on my plants? I am going to set up an auto feeder for my fishies and my lights are on a timer normally. I just won't dose anything for 4 days.

Is that gonna be a prob??
Thanks

With the plants you have, I'd say no. You are good to go.

Agree with Overfloater. I have left my fish for 5 days without feeding.

I wouldn't worry about them at all.

I have a very high lighttank and I have gone a week without fertalizing. Just dosed 10PPM KNO3, lots of trace and 2PPM PO4. I think I fed the fish only 2-3 times during that period. You should have no problems as long as you dose before you go.
