Going on vacation feeding question

Leaving on a Friday (day 1), gone for the next 8 days and coming back on day 10. I'll of course feed them on days 1 & 10, but was wondering if having someone feed them just twice, on days 4 and 8, would be sufficient. Or, what would you do?

I have a divided 10g, a 6.6g and a 3g.

It's not ideal but they should be fine for that amount of time without feeding. You don't want to have someone come in and feed them if you won't have someone doing a water change, especially on the 3 gallon.

Feed every day up until you go, and then do a Big water change, Betta's can, although not ideal go that long without feeding, just make sure first thing you do when you get back is a further water change and a feed :)
