What works very well for me is do everything as normal, dosing, C02 etc, but turn the lights down and shorten the period, C02 off with lights, start a week or a couple few days before you leave to get an idea.
I have yet to have a single problem.
Feed the fish before you leave, they will be fine for 4 days without food.
