Okay, so I'm a college student, and we're going on winter break in 3 weeks. Winter break is 5 weeks long. I have someone to take care of Apollo, my elephant ear Betta, for the last three weeks of the break. I was wondering what my options were for the first two weeks. I was thinking if I put in a couple of ghost shrimp he'd be alright (he's eaten a few of those before when I was trying to give him some friends).
I know that the two week feeder tablets mess up the water, but if I do a water change right before I leave and then the girl he's staying with does one when she gets back after the first 2 weeks, would this be alright too?
