Water Change?

I'm going away thursday-sunday- my family will be home so they can feed my fish but im due for my weekly water change sunday.. Im wondering if i should just do a WC now.. obviously i know it wouldnt hurt.. but im in a time crunch and im willing to if its needed but i can wait that would be better.

heres my water parameters

I would do a quickie water change before you go. Those trates can come down a bit.

180g Reef - 60g Rimless Reef -90G FOWLR- 125g Malawi Cichlids- 40b REEF- 34g Fresh Planted-working on- 20L FOWLR- working on
I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Do one now if you can but it wont harm it if you do it when you come back,just tell the family to feed once every two days.

Yeah having family members feed them can be recipe for disaster. If you feed them before you go and when u get back they'll be fine
