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.
Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
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.
