I am going on vacation. This is the first time leaving my tank for more than just over night.
I have a coworker/friend staying at my house to care for fish and dogs.
What are good things to remind him of?
Also- My biggest concern is my itty bitty baby mandarin. Im still plumping him up because he was half starved at the lfs
. I spot feed him a lot, and he eats mysis. But My concern is that the person won't spot feed him good enough and the other fish will beat him out of the shrimp.
I have him in my 55 reef tank now. But i have a 12g nano-cube that is almost finished cycling.
I was thinking of only moving my mandarin in there with a big piece of chaeto from my fuge, and dosing with like 2000 pods
before i leave, then he can just munch away and then the fish-watcher can throw some mysis in there too and he will have no food competition. I could even leave a bottle of pods
for the guy to dose my tank with half way through being gone.
Or is this just gonna stress him out and is pointless?
