I prefer to not feed them than trust someone else to do it who has no idea what theyre doing

I went to KC for 2 days and fed them before I left like Loacheman said up above and everything was fine when I came back. Boy were they happy to see me though. Hungry Jack. :lol:

2 days is no sweat for them.

Just think of it this way, holding females of most mouthbrooders hold for at least 14-21 days without eating for the majority of it - I would not worry about 2 days at all.
