Feeding my fish while I'm on vacation

I am going to be at the ocean. We wont be here for Sat. and Sun. and part of Mon. We have 1 blue damsel, 1 4 striped damsel, 1 yellow coris wrasse, 1 yellow tang, 2 percula clowns, 2 green chromis, and 1 coral beauty angelfish. I wasn't sure if there was something we could put in the tank that they could feed on for those couple of days that we were gone. Any ideas?

You should be fine without feeding them for 3 days. They only need to be fed every 2-3 days anyways.

Last time I was away from home for a long weekend I just put some algae on a clip before I left.

Just feed them on your way out the door, they'll be fine for a few days without eating.

It was weird leaving the lights out for three days over Memorial weekend... but they did fine with a double-feeding just before I left (You can get away with a single feeding -- but yah know, they're my fish). Now that I have a timer on my lights... no more worries there.
