I’m fairly new to this and have not been away from the tank and don’t have an auto feeder. My question is would my fish (small cow fish, coral beauty, red scooter Blenny, lined Blenny, pipefish, blue-green Cromis) be ok for two days if I feed them a cube of Mysis and a cube of blood worms in one of those feeders that sticks to the side with little holes in it? I could also put a couple algae tabs on the bottom for the snails and sprinkle a few flakes on top? I mean I know it’s not ideal but would this get them through until I get back?

For 2 days? I would feed a good normal feeding right before i left and the again when I got back. I wouldn't add that much food at once.. unlike cats they won't just nibble at it till it is gone.. they will eat what they want when you add it and ignore the rest.
 

Do you house a "Reef Safe" Angelfish in your reef tank?
