hi, i need to go away for about 5 days and was wonderin if anyone had any advice on how to handle feeding, ect. with such a long abscence. i will have the lighting situation taken care of in a few days as im buyin a moonlight see'n as all you's have really recommended them. i will hook this and his flourescent to a timer to mimic real light changes.(right now i do it manually but was considerin usein the timer see'n as i had to pull a few late nights at work and i dont wana stress my guy out. ill do a hefty water change the night before and check the water parameters again in the morning. my real big concern is food. i could add 5-10 live crabs to the tank as he will hunt them down himself but hes a glutton and ive seen him eat 3 at one sitting. i could have someone at my house feed him but im concerned they wouldnt quite grasp the whole"hes strong enough to open the lid if its not weighted down, himself!"idea. any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. hell, id even take critisisms at this point.
