The same thing happened to me last month. Luckily for me, I had family that came over every 3 days to top off with RO
. Is there really no one you can trust? Because besides having someone top off, or using an auto top off, or some form of DIY top off, I can't see any other way. But if you're only going to be gone for 3 days, it should be fine. I have a 10G saltwater as well with hermit crabs, snales and 1 clownfish. He was fine being topped off every 3 days.
