Leaving Betta fish for 3 days

My 1 betta fish is in a small fish bowl. Due to the holidays, I will be leaving for 3 days. Can my betta fish go without food for that long. Thanks.

Yes!! They can go a long time without food.

What size is his bowl? Bettas need space to swim. You might want to consider getting your fishy friend a bowl/tank that is 2g or larger, and a heater!

Thanks! It is a 1 gallon bowl, so I think I will look into getting a larger bowl. Thanks.

I have to second doggyhog's suggestion. Here is a good place to start: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/b...are-faq-20058/

He'll be absolutely fine without food... never buy into those feeder blocks. All they do is pollute the water and will probably kill a fish in a small bowl.
