Hi all, I am going to be gone at the end of the month for 4 days. Can you tell me if the timed release food cubes, found at fish stores, are any good?

If you are sure it is only 4 days and your fish are healthy and well taken care of you can really expect them to survive without food. The food cubes obviously work, but tend to pollute your tank with lots of food waste(kind of like overfeeding your fish). If you are really concerned invest in an automatic fish feeder. I have four of them and they work great if you feed flake to your has lots of models for sale. Locally you should be able to find the cheaper $25 (? approx)model.

I wouldn't bother with either. If you are only going to be gone for 4 days, they will be fine. I would be more worried of a power outage and suggest that you find someone to check on things while you are away if that is possible.
