My fiance and I are driving down to Maryland this evening to stay the weekend through Monday evening. We're bringing the cats with us so we're leaving the AC off in the apartment all weekend to save some cash. So here's my issue...
It's supposed to be at the least 80 degrees outside all weekend. Our apartment typically stays at 75 or above, usually 5 or so degrees above whatever is outside if we leave the AC off in the spring/summer. So, the temp in the apartment could fluctuate between 80 and 90. I'm planning on unplugging all of the heaters in their tanks and letting them be over the weekend while we're gone... does this sound like an ok plan?
I know of no way to cool the tanks other than to keep the AC on, which... ugh... would be expensive.
I also have live plants in the tanks and they're all in a fairly shady part of the apartment. The lights get awful hot... will they be ok with the lights off? :<
ALSO... last thing, I promise! What brand of weekend feeder would be best to give them? Or do they need one for 4 days?
Thanks whoever can offer some insight. :)
