QT Tank ???

Hi all,
I have 4 cromis that have been in QT for 4 weeks and doing great. Ich is gone.
Here's my problem, I have to leave for a week and no one to care for the fish except feeding every other day. So I setup a 30gal QT with fresh new saltwater (and ATO) and have just moved them in. How long do you think it will take before the ammonia level spike? Am I safe for a week?

No. Just use the same filter pads. They'll have a ton of bb in it.

No filter, just a air stone. That's what I had in the 10g QT, except I did 25% water change every 2 days.

Could you preamble the water and get the person who's coming to feed to do a water change.

not really. I wonder if the ammonia remover stuff would buy me some time?

I seen somewhere that ammonia spike could take a week or so depending on tank size, fish load and feeding...
