I have wasted money on these so that you don't have to.

The fish will be absolutely fine for a week.

An automatic feeder is unnecessary and more to do with the owner's feelings than the health of the fish.

The automatic fish feeders can be unreliable and do more harm than good including overdosing.

I have tried them and this is my recommendation.

are you sure the fish won’t suffer any health risks from being not fed for a week I know that you can fast fish but I think that they would need something in betwee.

Adult fish can and will survive perfectly fine for a week without food. It's actually better so that there's less waste while you're gone. I have also wasted money on three (3) different automatic feeders, one of which dumped it's entire contents into my tank. Don't do it.

Oh my god that one that dumped all of the food that’s just horrible. you do make a point though how there will be less waste I never thought of that. Also your name fits well because you are well known I love it my Guy.

Well thank you! I hope my fish don’t take a liking to my shrimp while I’m gone!!
