How many days total? Do you have corals? So you thinking of turning off your lights for the time you are away? I bought an auto feeder which does the job and always a good idea to have a timer on your lights anyway

Most fish will do fine without feeding for 3 days. Some only feed 2 times per week anyhoo. As for light, if there is enough ambient light, they should be ok as well. Might want to consider a light timer, provides better control over lighting periods.

I have 2 timers ( sump light and DT powerheads). Both are rotary mechanical timers and work very good. Soon I will have to buy another, as 1 was the timer for my pool filter. Many years they have been used without problem.

I got mine from a hardware store. Much more durable. Unfortunately hardware stores don't add on speciality store mark-up so they usually don't cost as much (at the hardware store).
