I’m Going on Vacation….What Do I Do With My Fish!


7day_betta_blockNo need to have your fish starve while you are lavishing in the Tropics, eating Turkey with the relatives, or away on_1 business. We have a variety of Automatic Fish Feeders in stock to spoil your fish while you are away. We even have automatic light timers so your plants will be happy too.

Just going away for a weekend or a week?  These handy 3-Day Pyramids and 7-Day Pyramids will keep your fish fed while you are away. The Pyramid Fish Feeder will automatically feed your fish when you’re on vacation. Features a patented secret chamber containing tubifex worms which opens half-way through the feeding cycle. Will feed 20 average sized fish in a 10 gallon tank for 7-8 days. For freshwater or saltwater fish.

Instructions: After being placed in the tank, the pyramid will start dissolving immediately and the first food pellets will be released within a few hours. Worms are released on about the 4 th day. Do not use in fishbowl’s or aquariums without adequate filtration andaeration, because water circulation is needed for the pyramid to dissolve properly.

We also have them for Siamese Fighting Fish. Each of these food blocks will feed your betta for 7 days. Contains: Freeze-dried Tubifex worms, bloodworms, daphnia and white shrimp. Nutritious, high quality fish food. Each pack contains 6 feeder blocks.
