Vacation feeding

I'm going away over the summer. and my parent's will be gone for a week, leaving my fishies all alone. I know that bettas are hardy and can live for the week without food, but will my cories be okay, or should I do something for them? I have a divided, planted 10 gallon with 2 bettas, 2 young cories, and varying amounts of ghost shrimp.

Just feed them well in the days before and they should be fine. I leave for a week every year and my fish go without for the week as there is nobody to come and check on them and they are always fine.

If there are live plants in your aquarium they would be fine

Also you can check holiday tablets as well

The Corys and any other fish you may have will do just fine without being fed for a week.

Yep, they are fine. I actually leave specific directions NOT to feed my fish while I'm away. I have a friend that takes care of the other pets.
