Leaving betta's for a couple week's!

So I might be deployed to muskoka for a couple week's and leaving my two lil' guys behind, i will not be there but they have each a pet snail so they won't be completely alone *lol*

it's the first time i leave them for this long so im nervous as a mom is with her kids *lol*

i know that maybe they can be fine without food but it's the water changes im really nervous about.
does anyone have any sugestions i could do to make me less scared about leaving them...

thankx

Do you have a friend that could change their water a few times?

I don't know if the snails can go that long without food either..

well i asked my mom to take care of them and she told me to ship them to my dad *lol* she finds them gross

so if i take them to my dad's, he already has goldfish, so my betta's might be better there, do i take the whole two tanks over ...

I would suggest that. If your mother finds them "gross", she probably wouldn't know how to take very good care of them. Leaving them in the hands of someone who knows a little about fish already and who can give them a bite to eat and change their water would be much better.

but what i wanna know is if i should put them in a separate container or can i just transfer both the tanks to my dad

i'd prefer just to move the tanks cause they need their heater but also im sure gonna have fun hauling two tanks 5 or so miles to my dads
both the tanks are the small 2.5 minibow desktop aquarium so it won't be that hard to lift them i think

does anyone have sugestions to how i can do this...

I'd say move the tanks personally. Take out the equipment before transport like heater and anything else that can break or fall over, lower the water level and just go.

also I'd put towels in the back of your car and fasten seatbelts around them to keep them from moving. but I've never done something like that before so it's just theory.

well i was thinking of bringing them just one at a time and i'd be holding the tank while my dad drove me to his house,

but having my second tank strapped in the back of the car would save us alot of time, hmmm

and im also writting up care sheets for them so my dad will know a bit about betta's and snail's *lol*
im pretty proud of those care sheets hehehehe
