Exclamation Going on a trip

I'm going camping for four days. I don't know what to do with Saix. Should I give him a little extra food? Should I take him with me (we'll be in a camper with beds, not sure about A/C though)? I don't trust anyone around here to take care of him while I'm gone because they'll either forget or overfeed him. -__-

I'm sure your boy will be fine for four days, grouchy but fine. I've heard of some bettas taking a week to start eating after they were first bought. Just give him an extra pellet before you go (just a little extra of whatever you feed him, not much, just a tiny bit more). Just out of curiosity, what size tank? Oh wait, I see your sig, just do a water change, or at least partial water change before you go, ammonia build up would be of greater concern than him going hungry!

Just to add, bettas can go just fine for about two weeks, Ive heard 20+ days, even. To be certain, you dont want to ALWAYS not feed the poor thing for long bouts, but their relatives in the wild do not have a constant supply of food and can last for long times without, as can domestic bettas.
