    I have been gone on vacation for 5 days and won't be back for another 4. I am worried about my plants not having ferts for over a week. I have everything else on timers and automatic feeders for the fish. I didn't know what to do for the ferts. Hopefully they don't get algae forming on them.

    They should be fine, Every year I go on vacation for 2 weeks and all my plants and fish do fine. I have low light and medium light plants.

    I am EI dosing ferts in a high light tank. That's why I am a little worried. I just got everything in balance.

    The plants should be alright, there might be a little melting. Can you have somebody go dose your tank?

    My downoi kind of took a beating, it melted or got picked on by the fish. Its starting to come back.

    Couldn't you shorten the lighting-period a bit by the timers. They'll use less fertilizer.
