View Full Version : Dendro feeding on vacation for 12 days

12/20/2014, 10:30 PM
I have about 25 heads of fat headed red dendro that I want to keep alive above everything else in my tank.

I have the entire auto dosing suite along with everything else automated, except target feeding the dendros. Currently I target feed them every 2 days. How should I feed them on vacation???

If I feed them like psycho before I leave, and feed them again in 12 days, would they be okay?? They might be able to catch some fish food.

If you have been feeding them every two days I am sure they are really healthy. Just feed them the night before you leave and enjoy your trip. I have went two weeks and my fat heads were just fine.

you could always have a fellow reefer keep eye on tank.

I agree. Try to fins someone local. You can't believe how helpful local reefers are in times of need. That's exactly what I did and will do for anyone in need.

don't worry about it. 12 days is nothing for a healthy colony. I would feed them every day for the week leading up to the trip and enjoy.

I think I will just overfeed the fish and hopefully the dendros catches some food. Thanks!
