Heagler created the topic: Leaving for Extended Period of Time

Hi I have a question about not feeding. My boyfriend has recently got a tank and he has two small oscars, 2 blue demansoni cichlids, a couple of clown loaches and two large angelfish. He is going 3 states away for a week for a funeral. He wanted me to come with him but I reminded him of the fish and they need fed. Well, I was thinking of going home to see my family for about 3 days while he is gone. I have come to this forum for advice on whether it will be okay to go this long without feeding the fish. (Mainly the oscars). If they would be okay for that period of time I will leave, if not I will not leave. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you

Hello and welcome to OFL. Fish will be just fine for 3 days. Feed just before you leave, do a large water change and feed when you get back. Now, since you seek any advice, you have major issues beyond a few days no food. I encourage you and your bf to join us when your travels are over and we will assist you to get things in better order.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!
