Feeding Betta while Away

I am going away for the weekend. Three days and two nights...is there something I can give my Betta to eat while we are away or do I need to hire a fish sitter?

They'll be ok for 3 days and 2 nights without food. I don't think you need to worry about anything.

I've left mine for 5 days without no food. No problem. :)

I had my brother check on them but told him NOT to touch anything! LOL

Bettas generally don't eat those, and they foul your water like crazy.

Well, the tablets I heard could kill fish. But I agree he should be fine.
