Holiday Vacation Planning

592 1
I'm all ready for the holidays I got a light timer and automatic feeder. All tested and ready to go :flick: any other suggestions for planning to go away for awhile?

How long do you plan on being away from the tank?

- make sure to guard against water loss from evaporation (if you have a sump, you can throw an ATO in there)
- make sure sure auto feeder isn't dispensing too much food at once: you'll have a nice algae/nitrate problem when you get back if you are gone for a while.
- do a big water change right before you leave.
