Auto feeder is a good thing to have. Last time I went for 5 WEEKS (yes, weeks, not days) of vacation and all my discus had no problem. Go on line and you can order for some good quality ones, like Ehiem made.

Wow, 5 weeks? Who did the WCs whilst you were away?

I agree with the above post...5 days is not all that long to go without food...sure, the fish will be hungry, but a good feed before and after your trip should be sufficient.

Just an update. I got my automatic feeder... and I got it cheap by hoping from one LFS to another. The first LFS was selling it for $30, I finally got it from another LFS for $15. Will start to test it tonight.

I used the Tetra Gel Feeder in my tank when I was gone for a week. It killed both fish (a clown and a green chromis) and completely polluted the tank. Luckily my shrimp, crabs, and snails are pretty robust... they survived.
