I will be going on a two month trip for work out of state. I am currently in the process of cycling, hoping it will cycle in time before I leave next month. I will be asking my parents to care for my two bettas. I don't want them to too much work for me as it may be a hassle for the two months.
What is the bare minimum for water change on a 2.5g tank cycled? Also for a 5.5g tank cycled? Should I tell them to feed less so they produce less waste/fast an extra day?
For those who have experience w/ having a cycled 2.5g tank what are you thoughts on keeping the parameters low when cycled? I do not have any live plants.
