Question Mini - Vacation.... help....

I am heading out of town for 4 days. Usually on weekends I am out of town I don't worry about leaving Maxx with out food. And the one time I was out of town for a week, I had somebody to look after him. But 4 days is kind of right in the middle. Will he be fine, or should I get somebody to check on him once or twice while we are gone?

What about this time release food I have seen in the stores? Is that the answer for a short time away?

From what I've heard, 4 days is fine to leave him without food. Bettas can live up to four weeks without food, so 4 days should be no problem.

If you want to have someone look in on him once or twice while you're gone, then that would be fine but like the others said, he'll be fine for 4 days.

I'm leaving them next Friday for Thanksgiving, Won't be back until Tuesday. They'll be fine, though.

Just one thing...don't know if you already know this, but don't use feeding blocks while you're gone.
