Vacation Help

My tank is 40 Gallons, t5 HO, CO2, and EI ferts from Nilocg. Today (Sunday) is when I do my 50% water change. When I leave for holidays, it's usually at the end of the week, (Thurs or Fri).

I was wondering how many hours I should leave the CO2 & lights on for while I'm away, and should I change or cut the ferts regiment leading up to departure?

Is anyone going to be caring for the tank while you're gone? If so, then I would just make it as easy and fool proof as possible. Your lights and CO2 should stay on the same schedule as they normally are.
