Vacation feeding ?

I will be away for over 10 days on vacation. At the moment I just have shrimp, crabs and snails in my tank. Can these survive without feeding for 10 days ?
I know there is all kinds of stuff in the tank (6 months old) but is supplemental feeding necessary ? Want to avoid auto feeders because they are difficult to control and will cause over feeding.

It should be fine for that length of time. Maybe a small amount of food prior to leaving to ensure everything is ok til then, but it should be fine.
