So, I got my fish a few weeks ago and I need to know what to do during Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks. They will stay in my house as I can't transport them with me. For Thanksgiving I will be gone for four days, and Christmas I will be gone for two and my family would rather feed the fish to the cats than feed and do water changes.
I've seen the vacation pellets in the pet store, but I don't know if they work or are worth it. They'll be in the divided cycled ten gallon tank, so I can do water changes before I leave so ammonia won't be too bad, but is there any thing else I should do for them before I leave? I'll leave my curtains open so they can have natural light as I don't have a timer for their hood light.
