Lack of oxygen is the biggest killer! Low temperature will slow down multiplication of bacteria, and they can go few days without food source..... Just keep filter media oxygenated.... if you are travelling use battery air pump.

Might lose some but for that amount of time it should just mostly slow growth and reproduction.
