Hi, I'm going on vacation in about a week and a half, and I'll be away from home for a week, and I don't know what I should do with my male Betta. I have him in a 1-gal, filtered (very low-flow), heated, with a Betta leaf hammock, a small ceramic cave, and some java moss, and I change 50% of his water every 2-3 days. I typically feed him 4 Hikari Bio-Gold pellets morning and night. He currently has fin rot, which I'm treating with 2 tsp. Aq. salt. I'm going to be on the road for about 8 hours, so I'm disinclined to take him with me because of the stress of the trip and his home being taken down and set up twice in a week.
So, my two specific questions:
How do I keep his tank clean while I'm away?
What do I do about food?
