Well, when I first got into this hobby, it was in the middle of a chilly snowy winter while being bogged down with school work. Perfect time to learn how to care for fish! But alas.... summer is almost here, and I have realized how little I am home when the climbing/rafting/hiking/camping/etc is good!
I will be taking weekend/4 day trips often, which should be fine with my 10 gal and 5 gal. I am going to give Chester (my big orange dal) to a friend who has fallen for him for the summer (haha maybe forever, we will see if I ever get him back!) He is in a 2.5 gal so I am nervous about his water changes if I keep him in my care all summer.
Next week I leave for a week long trip and am nervous. Diablo is in a 5 gal, Sam the 10 gal. I can have someone swing buy to feed them. Does anyone have any other advice I should give a fish sitter?
