I have a betta in a similar tank on my desk at work, and he just doesn't eat on weekends. Doesn't seem to bother him much.

Doesn't hurt them not to eat on weekends, it's good for them to go a day or two to clean out their systems. Betta's can get constipation problems from being over fed. I wouldn't go past two days though. On longer weekends and vacations, I bring mine home with me.
Very nice haven!

Mine has gone up to 4 days without eating and has been fine with it. Usually there is someone working at least one day out of a weekend -- long or short -- and they drop some food in for the Betta. If I have to leave him without a feeding for more than 4 days, I drop in a vacation feeder. There's no reason to stress a fish with unnecessary moving, imo.
