Hi guys and gals, I'm having surgery and will be bedridden for 10 days so I can feed my fish but not change the water.
Marley is in a five gallon hex tank, heated, filtered, and with a hood. Since the hood keeps the water from evaporating quickly, do you think he'll be okay going a few extra days without a 25% water change? I have been doing a 25% change once a week.
If you think he'll suffer my husband can do it but he's recently hurt his back and it tends to go out on him....if that happens in the middle of a water change it would be bad because I can't finish the work for him, so I'd rather not take the chance unless it's necessary.
