Going out of town......should I get someone to feed him?

We are going to be out of town for a week. Should I ask one of my neighbors to come in to feed my betta? How long can they go without food? Thanks.

They CAN go that long with out food, But I would get your neighbor to feed him once or twice. :)

Like doggyhog said, your neighbor wouldn't need to come but once or twice. My neighbor came about a total of 6 times in 16 days and my fish were fine.

no food for a week would be better than too much- bloat for a week straight could kill him- so be very clear about the amount he should be fed if you have someone check on him
