Question Almost 3-Day Fast?

Hello Everybody!

I'm desperate for advice or to see whether anyone has done this before!!
I'm going on holidays for 10 days and my good friend promised to look after Anthony the CT and my three pygmy cories, Tic, Tac and Toe.

My friend has an opportunity to go out of town for the weekend, so that means the tank won't be tended on Saturday and Sunday. She can feed eveybody on Monday afternoon. Apart from that, she will be able to feed them daily.

So, what do you think?? Will going without feeding on Saturday and Sunday present a major problem for my fishy friends?? I can feed them extra-hearty on Friday!?

Thanks so much, I really value your input!!

You have the right idea - if your friend is going away it's perfectly okay to let your bettas fast over the weekend. Bettas are tough little fishies and can go a month without food and have no ill effects.

Thanks for asking the question!

I was actually worried about that when I'm away for 3 days during my wedding!

Thanks, Fleet. I'm pretty amped up about my betta, Caesar. He's very responsive and comes to the front of the tank when I walk by. He begs for food already; it's too cute.

@fleetfish Thanks for the welcome, I'm always in and out of here! So far, this forum's wonderful members have helped me during a shrimp-eating crisis (Anthony's, not mine! lol) and how to quarantine him during a fin issue. So, I would say, this is a great place to be if you have a betta! Will the corydoras be OK too, do you think?

He's a handsome boy, for sure! There's actually a video of him in the "Meet the Betta Keepers" section. The fiance uploaded it to facebook for me and made it public.

I'm in the process of building his new tank, so will post a better picture once I get it all done! He's going to be a happy boy for sure!

@Dani I checked it out, he is awesome! It looks like he's enjoying his current digs, just wait until you put him in the 10g!
