hahaha I love this, definitely doing it next time! I asked my wife to feed the betta fish while I was in the shower ... I said "just a pinch.: Little did I know a pinch could be so large. I then spent an hour scooping it all out and refilling the tank
You could also use baggies, measuring spoon or a medication dispenser. I like the dispenser more because you can seal it but you can't fit as much food. I still get nervous getting other people to take care of my stuff even with a solid essay on how to feed them lol
I had a pet sitter almost kill Toaster by overfeeding her. I came back to the tank all murky. Toaster looked like she was about to explode.
Ever since then if I go on a vacation that’s long enough I’ll need to feed my fish, I’ll either use an autofeeder(though for bettas trying to get the thing to drop the right amount is almost impossible) or I pay a trusted friend.
I go back to Australia for around a month every 2 yrs and other then getting my mother in law to top up the water every week my tank doesnt get touched.
My tank always looks better after i come back compared to when i left.
