IME I totally agree with this [And have left my fish for 5 days or more on more than one occasion with no issues].
A couple reasons for this IMO:
* As mentioned fish in the wild don't eat every day and healthy fish can go a week without eating.
* You are running out of time to effectively test whatever auto system you are going to use & certainly wouldn't want to use it untested.
I would want to test it for at least as long as I needed to trust it for.
* You risk less by not feeding them at all as opposed to having the auto-feeder potentially overfeed them on a daily basis.
Just my 2 cents worth.
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
