I leave me octo for a week-10 days every other month. I just leave live clams and mussle in there and it is no big deal.

I get no one to check and he has been fine every time. I figure somebody who knows nothing about fish checking is worse than taking my chances with pumps and such.

Get someone who knows about aquariums or teach a rank newbie about your system. :biggrin2:

98% of the time your tank sitter will have to do nothing, but when that 2% happens, boy they come in handy.
