Fry with out food for 2 days ?

I am going on a short 3 day weekend. I am going to a do a wc and I have someone to come and feed but I feel feeding could kill the fish if they feed too much.

I will feed them tonight. Then Sunday and Monday they will be without food till Tuesday night.

Is that too long?

When my cichlids would spawn, I would fast the tank because I did not want the fry to survive. It took more than 3 days to see any noticeable decrease in numbers.

At 74-76 degree they can stay a few days without food
Low light n cooler temp keep the fish less active
So less food to feed
You should be fine
Just two days won't kill your fish

If I lose a few no big deal I have more then I thought I would.

I might have someone come by on Monday and feed them a little.
