For the holiday I'll be going out of town from Wednesday afternoon until Saturday evening. My mom will be taking care of my fish until I get home. I'm just very..very worried about the feeding situation. I normally wouldn't have anyone feed them but since Dumbledore has gotten into this habit of chewing his tail when he doesn't get some kind of interaction for a few days, I figured it's probably best she feeds them. But every time I feed them I come home to a bloated, unhappy betta. I can't tell you how many times I tell her only 3 or less pellets per feeding or 1 blood worm to make things simple. Should I only have her feed them twice? I'll be able to feed them Wednesday morning and a snack before we leave and Saturday when I get home. So maybe Thursday and Friday morning? That way if she does over feed them then they'll have time to digest it all...
UGH. I'm so worried! Last time I went away my fish got sucked up in the filter. I've since fixed that, but what if another emergency happens while I'm away? Anyone have any tips to give yourself some peace of mind while on vacation?
