    We are not sure if we should get an automatic feeder or give it week tablets? Since its called week tablets it probaly is there just a week tho but we found a cheap automatic feeder on ebay ( we need to get two because two aquariums) but its unbranded and we are confused but what do people normally do when they are away from thwir fishies

    Fish can go easily without food for 2 weeks. I wouldn't risk using those automatic feeders especially if you're thinking of using cheap ones. They can jam and foul up your water. And if there's no one to perform water changes, you could come home to dead fish.

    I've left my fish without food for 10 days and they were all perfectly fine when I got back.

    Those week tablets are full of junk that will just foul up your water; agreed with @el337, they'll be fine without food. :)
