Traveling Question

We will be gone a month. The divided and planted 20 long house three Bettas, RCS, Pygmy Cories and Dwarf Guppies.

My plan is to do a 50% water change the day before we leave. Our friend will feed them every three days. He's had fish so he knows less is more.

Any other ideas or does this sound like a plan?

Thanks.

How heavily planted is it? The feeding sounds fine, but I would be much more worried about the water.

Heavily planted with 75% substrate cover (DWG, Blyx, Dwarf Sag, Dwarf Chain Sword), lots of moss, stem plants, swords, anubias, Red Root Floaters, etc. Running Danner Ovation 700 (265 gph), Fluval Nano (81 gph), two Aquatop IF-202 (58 gph each).

He's mainly going to feed the Bettas and a tiny pinch for Guppies. Not feeding the RCS and there's enough algae for the Cories.

Is that TMI?

With things like this, there's no such thing as tmi :p.

Are your params usually 0.0.0?
