I am taking Spooky home with me over Thanksgiving break, but my boys will be in my dorm for 10 days. I know that they can go 10 days without food, but I am still worried. Their tank is cycled and I have practice tested the water after 10 days of no changes and the parameters are still perfect. So water quality is not an issue at all. There are also some critters in the tank that the fish can find and munch on, so hopefully they won't be completely without food! Both of my boys have never been healthier, the lights are on a timer, and they have been in this tank for almost 4 months now with no problems with the divider.
What can I say? I am a worried fish keeper! Quell my fears!
