This is what I would do:

1. Have trusworthy friends to come over to turn on/off lights, clean the glass, top of water (not tap water but have some drinking water jugs available), feed the fish and corals.

2. Have them call you if there is a problem.

3. Pay them 50 bucks.

Depending on the fish some will live two weeks without food but some will die. Foxface and blue chromis need feedings frequently or they will go into decline very quickly. DP

Going Away for 2 weeks.

I have tested automatic feeders. I have a reef tank with constantly moving water. When dry flakes are dropped into it, the surface tension keeps them afloat until most go into the filter.

I have found trusted people to come in daily to feed, empty protien filter and top up as necessary. This was the most frequently mentioned suggestion and your prodding made me look harder.

Thanks.
