Feed your fish while you are away

We are amateur neon tetra owners. Our main worry since we have had these fish had been how do we take care of them when we are away. You can get 1 week food tablets which can slowly feed your fish over a week. But if you plan to be gone longer than that, what do you do?

It turns out you can just buy a nice and cheap $20 automatic feeder. It can hold 6 weeks of food and can be programmed to feed upto 4 times a day. It also has a setting that during each feeding time it drops food twice � with an interval of a minute between them � to help the slow eaters have a better chance at getting their food.

We tried it out yesterday and it works flawlessly. Now only of we could find another cheap way to automatically change the water once a week without doing any special hardware setup

Here’s a Petco link though it’s much cheaper on eBay. http://www.petco.com/product/105443/EHEIM-Automatic-Feeding-Unit.aspx
