Vacation feeding

I'm going on vacation for 3 days. I have a 120 gallon tank with 11 fish in it. Two of the fish are tangs. 1 Atlantic Tang and the other a Blue hippo tang. I really don't have anyone I can depend on feeding the everyday. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Yup, no need to feed them 3 days, believe it or not, they will be just fine.

I've been feeding a tank I maintain twice a week for about 6 years now. Large tangs and rabbit fish are doing just fine.

The tangs don't get aggressive toward each other. I have been told to give then seaweed every day.

I tend to feed mine everyday. But a 3 day stint will not hurt anything at all.

Thanks, I think I feed to much. I run a phosphate reactor because of. I'm going to taper them Dow so it won't be such a shock when I'm gone.

It's funny, my dog is so jealous of my fish. She barks and kicks her hind feet whenever I'm near my aquarium
