I’m going on vacation for a week and don’t want the sitters to have to handle the frozen food. My question is: how long can a canary blenny live without frozen food? If necessary I’ll buy one of those defrosting feeders. Thanks in advance!

IMO he should be fine. IME most fish can be left for a week without issue.

I buy specimen cups and premix everything in them then put them in the fridge or freezer. Depending on how long I’m gone the house sitter can move them from feeezer to fridge to fish tank.

I will typically use my Neptune auto-feeders 2x a day and every other day or two they just dump in a cup and throw it away. Makes it teenager/college student proof.
