I have used them twice on both my fresh water tanks and saltwater. I won't go away without putting them on. Make sure you set it right, has the right sized food in it, and make sure not to much food comes out at each feeding programmed

Yea your fish can survive about 5 days without food so just one would be enough to keep them happy how many do you have ?

You could probably buy a weekend block feeder and that could do them but one auto feeder would be fine

If you didn't want to go to the trouble of getting the feeder and setting it up you could just go with the weekend block like moggy said.
