They will be fine for four days without food. Feed before you leave, don't over feed, and feed them on your return.

Unless you have fry that require constant feeding ... Don't concern yourself about feeding while your gone. The above advice from Ocean will do fine.

+1 to this. Most fish would be fine being left alone for a week. Those vacation feeders are horrible for the water quality. Not feeding the fish forces them to scavenge in the tank and actually helps get rid of uneaten food. Fasting helps regulate their digestive system, so that helps make for a healthier fish too.

Like ocean said... feed before you leave, feed right when you get home. They should be fine.
