Goldfish while on vacation

I may have to leave my goldfish on his own for a week while I'm not in town.
I was hoping to find out if people have had any particularly good or bad experiences with leaving fish alone for this period of time.

I've heard particularly bad opinions about vacation feeders--those little blocks of solid food that you put in the tank when you're about to leave, apparently according to some they mess up the water pretty fast...
Thanks for any opinions!

Vacation feeders are terrible.

I've left my fish alone for up to two weeks without issue.

Got a question about loaches? Ask me!
Loach count: 22
Baby fish count: 12 (multis)

Should be fine for a week as long as everything's good now
