Angelfish fry and out of town

I have to go out of town family emergency Friday night to Sunday night. My fry are about a month old. I have no one to feed them this weekend. Will they survive from my feeding Friday night till I can feed them Sunday night? I feed them frozen brine shrimp because it is hard to get live brine locally. I'm considering bringing them for the ride as a last resort of they can't survive.

No one can say for sure that they will or will not survive but at a month old, they should be able to go a couple of days without food. Just feed them a "normal" amount on Friday before you go so that no uneaten food goes bad and fouls the water while you are gone. You may lose some to predation from their siblings but those are usually ones you'd be culling anyway. Just make sure you feed them Monday morning.

Hope this helps.
