vacation question

Hi - I'm having trouble finding a fish feeder for a short trip, and I'm wondering if my fish will be okay. I'm leaving on Saturday and returning on Tuesday. I could try feeding them Saturday, but I usually feed them in the evening so I'm not sure they'll realize it's food time. So they'd be 2-3 days without food. Do you think that would be okay, or should I start begging neighbors? It's a 20 gallon tank with 5 tetra, 2 platys, 2 shrimp, and a small pleco.

Thanks!

Just try and feed them before you leave, 2-3 days is perfectly fine.

Two three days they will stay perfectly fine. You don't need feeder. As ZXC said. Feed them at the last moment before you leave.
