How do I feed my fish when I go on vacation?

If you go on vacation, it's a little tricky to feed your fish. There's some things out there now, kind of pre-formulated sinking tablet. Pros and cons, it's simple for you, that's the pro. Cons, sometimes your fishes don't like it and they don't eat it, and that's a bad thing. And there's no measure as to how it is released, it's not time-released. It just starts breaking down. So your fish could all pig out and eat it on the first day and if you're gone for four more days, they don't have any food, or they don't eat it at all and its so big, it just decomposes and fouls your water. The other way is to use an automatic feeder. There's a couple of really good ones on the market and I recommend using pellet for that so that you might want to change your fish to eat pellets a little bit. And you can put the pellet food in and it drops a premeasured amount exactly the same time everyday. That's very routine. That's the best way.
