Not for a week at a time, if it's one that snaps tight for each day of the week. I use this when I go away on vacation and have my brother in law watching the tank. Everything on it is automatic except for the feeding, so he just pops the top and dumps it in.

You can get ones like this: Walgreens*AM/PM Detachable Pill Box | Walgreens that have multiple slots for each day if you want to separate different types of food.

If your not opposed to temporary planting your tank try some java moss it stands a good chance of out competing the algae or like everyone else said scrub it off do a good sized water change and kill the lights for a week.

I have a bunch of anubias nana and java fern in my tank.

The java moss would not last a week with my cichlids unfortunately.

I had set aside a feeding schedule for my mom. Hopefully it'll be fine
