Large water change before you leave and that's it. He should be fine. The feeders will just cause him to foul the water more. Maybe see if someone can feed him a couple pellets mid week.

He'll be fine for a week. Leave the lights off, put on some classical music and he'll chill.. like Mike said though.. if you have a trusted friend that could pop in for a mid week feeding..
