Question Time Release Food Blocks?

Are there any time release food blocks for bettas? I'm going to leave for a week long vacation, and I don't have anyone who can come and feed Flapjack for me

I was thinking about automatic food feeders, but they all seem to big for my tank, so I dont know.....

My professor had one for her betta. I don't know where she got it or what brand it is - but I know they are out there. Her's made the tank messy though.

Wal Mart has Tetra Brand time release tropical fish feeders. I don't know how well they work, they're about $4-5.

They CAN be left alone for a week and not be fed but I think most of us would rather have our fish fed. There is a vacation feeder made by Tetra that is a gel feeder that doesn't (or isn't supposed to) mess up your water.

oh ok thanks =) have you seen it/used it, or do you know where to get it?
I was contemplating on not feeding him, but I just would feel bad, and worry too much about him=(

I saw a Betta specific time release fish food at Petsmart. I think it was Top Fin.
