Feeding later tonight. Going to be in Alaska and the Yukon for two weeks in may/June, so I'm starting to spread out my water changes a bit to see what my levels will do. I'm not too worried but one only knows. I do 50% atleast once a week. They will be going 14 days with no food, lighting and water changes it drives me crazy just thinking about it!!

Why not get a timer for your lights?

I've heard bad things about those auto feeders. And with the light timers, I may look into those. But where my tanks are, they get a get plenty of natural light. Also, may/June on the Midwest, it can get pretty hot, so I'm kind of worried about major water evaporation.

I use an auto feeder all the time on my leopard ctenepoma tank. They are so shy it works well - they can be fed while I'm not standing by the tank. I use the autochef and love it.

If I was going to be gone for 2 weeks I would be desperately searching for someone I could trust and offer them cash to stop in a couple times a week. Have top off water on hand and try to make it as simple as possible for them to at least maintain the water level. I use a digital auto feeder with no problems at all on my cichlid tank. Program feeding times, multiple feedings if needed. Not sure of the brand but I got it at PetSmart for like $30.00.

Drained most of the water from my 29 and 30 gallon tanks (into buckets to be put back) and moved them so I could make room for the new to me 55gal that I am gonna upgrade my 30gal salt water tank to. The 30 is an incomplete reef startup that I just wanted to upsize before I get too much in it. Cant wait to get the 55 cleaned up an move everything over from the 30 gal.

Added 3 firemouths (looking for pair) and cleaned both my filters, and added a third filter that I had laying around because why not?
