I am leaving for Thanksgiving and I'm wondering if I need to adjust my auto feeder for this trip. Usually I feed frozen mysis but all my tank inhabitants are trained to eat pellets. I feed twice a day when I am here, so normally I have the auto feeder feed twice a day as well, but it feeds more than I do. Should I set it to just once per day while I am gone since I'm gonna miss my water change? Will the fish be alright with that? Its a waterbox 20 cube with two clowns, a 6 lined wrasse, and a skunk shrimp. I will be gone for one week.

Fish should be fine, I did something similar several times this year. Though I was more concerned about the evaporation and auto top off not having enough “gas in the tank”… I ended up setting up redundant top off buckets so the primary would stay filled.
