Lightbulb Going away for 4 days what should I do?

I have two bettas and a community tank with 14 fish in total in it, I should be okay for the feeding part as I will show my mum every night starting tonight until I go, (Leaving on the 2nd of December) so she will get plenty of practice!

I'm just wondering if I do tank cleans on the day before I go, will all tanks be okay for 4 days without a clean? any suggestions or tips/tricks are appreciated :)

Yeah, if the tanks are cycled, then yeah 4 day's isn't a problem at all. Actually, it'd be better if she didn't feed them, especially if the tanks are not cycled. It won't starve them at all, fish can go a month or a few without food and they'll be fine.

@Ilovebettasbk11 I've always had a filter and heater for all tanks.. lol and I would trust my mum she's kept fish before so she does know a fair bit and often helps me, she just wouldn't know the diets of the fish I have that's all.

Both betta tanks are cycled :) community however isn't. I think I might get her to feed the fish perhaps on the 3rd day as I will technically be back on the 4th day so really it will be 3 days without a tank clean :)
