I'm considering moving a betta tank from my home to my work. What are the implications, in terms of feeding? I would basically be enforcing a "no one feeds my fish without my permission" rule, so it's likely that it would go without food from friday afternoon through monday morning. Longer for long weekends. Is this sustainable, for the fish? Any workarounds?
Are there any autofeeders that can dispense small enough portions for a single betta, couple snails and some shrimps in a 10gal hex?
TIA!

If he’s getting food through the week days he’ll have no issues going a few days without food.

I feed my fish every other day and I occasionally go two to three days without feeding them. I’ve heard that fasting can be good for them.
