So I have my betta Sterling, whom I love dearly and want the best for.
I'm going away this weekend with my parents to our family cabin. My husband unfortunately cannot make it, and will be staying home with our dog and cat, Sterling and my 20 gallon community tank.
Now, I have an auto feeder that I have set up for my 20 gallon, that I will just add an extra feeding to for while I'm gone. (I have it set for the evening feed, because I'm usually out of the house around 5 pm and lights out is at 7). There are 6 Harlequin's, 6 Diamond Tetra, 1 angelfish and 2 oto's. (I already have a 29 gallon that is getting picked up, so don't worry about the angel, already been addressed)
I also have a small breeder tank that affixes to my large tank, and am not so sure about my husband's memory for feeding the fish. Just because he is starting night shifts and may be so exhausted when he comes home he just doesn't think about it. I don't want to put too much on his plate.
Also, in May I am going away for a weekend, and there may not be anybody there, or just my little sisters, possibly a roommate, I don't know.
SO, after all that preamble, here is my question:
Would I be better off leaving the betta for the weekend in his own tank and hoping he gets fed (no cell service), or adding him in the breeder tank to the community tank where he will be guaranteed to be fed by the auto feeder?
I'm leaning towards leaving him in his own tank, and him getting the odd feeding. It's not like it's a week, and I figure that he would be more stressed out changing tanks so frequently. I just want confirmation I guess. I'm... quite attached to all of my fish (aren't we all) and I just want to make the right decision.
