Going on vacation for two weeks... should I worry?
I am going on vacation for two weeks soon and I'm a bit nervous about my fish (not so much plants). Do people commonly go away for this long and not have any problems?
I have a 90G running two Fluval 406's. No CO2, medium light on a timer for around 7-8 hours per day. I have set up an Eheim automatic feeder that I am testing before I leave to make sure portions are within reason and there's no extra food in the tank.
I have to admit, my biggest concern is food. I have two Bolivian Rams, 1 apisto, and 5 sterbai cats which normally stick to the bottom half of the tank and do best with quickly sinking pellets/wafers. I have two growing angelfish and 5 boesemani (plus some tetras) that generally get to flake food before it makes it down to them. I will put some pellets in the feeder, but I'm not sure how they will fare. What do you think?
I am not that worried about water quality with my filtration over a two week period unless a fish were to die and decay in the tank. Does that sound reasonable? I normally do a 30% w/c every week, so I'm not sure how the water parameters are if I let it go for two.
Would love some advice and/or reassurances so I don't worry the whole time. Thanks!
