I think they would be fine. Not quite sure though.

Yes you did post on the wrong wall. Can a mod move it please?

Yeah your fish will be fine. They can go quite a while without food. If you have fish that may eat plants you may come back to see some nibbled plants. My mystery snails do that.

But I've gone on a trip and left all of my tanks foodless for a week. I came back and everyone was fine. They are quite resilient, especially when it comes to food.

If you're really worried, you can have a friend come in and give the fish food. Just leave a portion of food out so that your friend does not have to decide how much to feed themselves.

They'd be fine, generally speaking they can go a week without food

Hi, wrong forum, but mod will move it

You should be fine. Fish can go two weeks without food before they start to starve.
