Leaving for the weekend

Hi everyone, hehe as you can see I am new to the site, and I have a quick question.

Im leaving for the weekend and I wanted to make sure my fish were feed so I went out and got a weekend fish food feeder. But on the back it says that its meant for 5-10 fish, and has to have circulation. It is a Topfin weekend fish food feeder by the way. Well I got one beta in a tank, with no filter. Is it still okay to use? Should I break the feeder in half or 1/4ths?

Thanks for any help!

Your going away just for the weekend? Your Betta will be FINE. Bettas can go a very long time without food. If you really want him to get fed, give him to a friend over the weekend.

Hello and welcome to FishForum. As doggyhog stated, your fish will be fine for the weekend. Just feed him right before you leave then when you come back.

If it hasn't been opened maybe you can take it back.

Bettas can go up to two weeks without food, so a weekend will be nothing.
