That's perfect! I was thinking about a betta and some smaller fish. Good to know about the automatic feeder! Thank you!Many fish can live without food or a week, but the first one that comes to mind for me is a goldfish. They can survive for 2 weeks if kept in the right conditions, and can nibble on basically and live plant you put in the tank. Only thing about goldfish is the recommended size of the tank is 10 gallons, but I'm sure 9 will be fine if the water parameters are right, you do water changes every 3-4 weeks, and you have an air pump or some live plants for oxygen, and feed the fish with a healthy diverse diet.
Another fish that can survive a week is a betta, which is great because 9 gallons is perfect for a betta. You can also put some other small fish like chili rasboras or ember tetras. (but not too many) Tetras and rasboras might not make one week though, so you can buy an automatic feeder. Forgot to mention automatic feeders work for lots of fish
Some people may not agree with this... that bro big, are messy and need a lot of filtration... too much filtration will create too high flow, which will stress the fish...Only thing about goldfish is the recommended size of the tank is 10 gallons
