So Ive been away from home for 5 to 7 days many times. I have a high tech, press co2 and ei does. What I do is this

I will do a water change a week before the day I leave. Then, I will EI does till the day I leave. I leave my co2 on, since its not on a timer its on 24/7 (Its a ph co2 controller). The light is on a timer so I leave it alone. For a week you should have nooo problem. If you have nutrient gravel, that would buy you even more time. Till now, I always come back and my plants have grown so much.

I'm VERY new to this, but I thought the concern would be for the fish. Will fish be okay for a week without food?...honest question.
If I had a high tech plant setup, I would turn off co2 and scale back the light...kind of like having a few cloudy, not so perfect days. I would assume they would be just fine.
