Question Vacation Feeding - Fluval Edge

Hi everyone,

I have two male guppies, 3 sunset tetras and 1 assassin snail in my 6 gallon Fluval Edge tank. Unfortunately I had already planned a 3 week trip to Mexico in November before we decided to get our tank 3 weeks ago.

I currently feed my fish daily in the morning and I am therefore concerned about leaving them for 3 weeks on their own.

I have looked at getting an automatic feeder but I know there are some problems with them and I don't think I could fit one on my tank. Another option would be a vacation block like "Tetra Vacation" - mixed reviews

Soooo... Any ideas/suggestions based on my setup and stocking?

I would try the feeding block because it releases food by the day

I found this feeder on Amazon. It looks good but I don't know if it would work with my tank.

Amazon.com: Fish Mate F14 Aquarium Fish Feeder: Kitchen & Dining

Maybe I'll just get my friend to feed the fishies 3-4 times per week.
