Greeting's Betta Keepers

I am going away for a long weakend. I have 33 Bettas in all. Most of them have circulation, but there are some that i keep in jars that i show. Is there anyone that knows enough to tell me how to feed the one's in the jar for about 4 days? The betta's with filter and air , I just feed them the automatic feeder blocks, but you halfto have circulation for those. Can anyone help me out.

Since you're only going to be away for 4 days, I wouldn't worry about feeding them.

A healthy fish can live upwards of 10 days without food, and being a little hungry is much better than the potential water parameter-mess that those feeding blocks can cause.

Give them a little extra the morning you leave, but be sure to remove anything uneaten before you leave obviously, or your water could be a mess when you return, and enjoy your break. :)

Yeah I would do water changes on all the jars too before you leave so it will be fresh. Have a nice trip!
