Hey, I am going on vacation this thursday and I'll be arriving home on sunday. Will they make it if I feed them a ton on thursday right before I leave and then feed them directly when I get home on sunday. (essentially skipping 2 days)
Whats your guys opinion? Flood feed?
thanks a lot

Yeah I would make sure there's enough live things running around in the tank to keep them occupied while you're gone. A guy in Dallas that had a few babies left on vacation and came home to one big fat one.
