The best advice is too have the baby sitter do nothing except check the tank. (dont have them feed, or do WC. but your going to be longer then weekend. so try to have them avoid disturb the tank except the minnum. less interaction will help with preventing problems.

Well I just got back today from being gone a week. I drew a line on the sump and said fill to this line only. I also instructed her ( my 21 yr old daughter) to feed only every other day and only a small pinch. And here is my cell call 24 hrs a day if you have to. And then I called every day to check. When I got back, everything was fine. I was not worried. Yeah right!!
