A month??? Wow that's amazing!! I know one girl here (whose the kid of betta in a bowl no heater type, although she's really nice and I wish I could connivence her that they're not happy in an unheated bowl!) left her boy all spring break and she said he was fine when she got back! I have to admit that it really scares me to leave them that long without being fed (and I am not sure if there will be someone here to feed them in that time but I will be asking around).
So if no one is here I would be leaving May 10 and then coming back May 17, hopefully sometime early (4 hour drive so early would be 1 lol) do you think they would be fine? I mean I know they're not meant to eat every day but I am honestly scared about leaving them that long, I guess i could drop a few pellets to the bottom and let them find it while I'm gone?
I've heard that the feeders for when you're out of town just mess up your water and hurt the fish really
