Question I'm going out of town! HELP!

How many days can my ACF'S (one male and one female) that are about 8 months old safely go without worms (or food in general) if I feed them 4 maaaybe 5 red wigglers before I go w/ a treat of HBH pellets?

Right now they live in a 20 gallon tank and live on a schedule of 3-4 worms very other day w/ special pellets as treats on occasion.

P.S. They might not be exactly 8 months old, but when we got them 8 months ago they were barely bigger than an African Dwarf Frog.

A while, probably up to a week without any issues. I would personally not leave them alone longer than a few days but it's not the end of the world. How long will you be gone?

Make sure you do a water change before you go .
