They will be fine for that short amount of time, I've done that with my boys multiple times this fall. Don't trust weekend feeders, they mess up your water and can do more harm than good

Yes, I agree with twolovers. Bettas can go weeks without food so a little weekend won't hurt. Also the automatic feeder part is VERY true. The food can sometimes not work and end up overfeeding your betta. Just do a water change just in case. Better to be safe than sorry.

They'll be grumpy but fine. They'll forgive you once they get food into their bellies.
