Hey All! I am a college student and am going home for 5 days for Thanksgiving and I'm not sure what to do for my betta. He's in a 3 gallon filtered and heated, non-cycled tank. I bought some of those 7 day vacation feeders, but I have read reviews that they sometimes don't work, but when I tried testing it, I had no idea how to tell if it was or wasn't working right. Should I just give him that and hope for the best? I read somewhere that bettas can go a while without food, but I don't know if that's true and don't want to risk it... Does anyone have any experience with vacation feeders? Or have any other ideas for feeding him during the vacation? None of my housemates will be home, so I can't have them do it and it's too short of a time for me to take him with me.
