Hello fellow Nerms! I have a 10 gallon that'll be ready for new occupant(s) in a few months. And I'm really considering 1 or 2 pea puffers as a mostly species-only tank. However... post-covid I'm eventually going to be back to taking 3-4 week out of country vacations once a year or so. And the normal auto-feeder strategy I apply to my other tanks has me concerned if I get pea puffers... since I understand they are extremely unlikely to take to flake food or bug bites/etc. Obviously frozen foods wouldnt work in an autofeeder... I'm wondering if something like freeze-dried blood worms/etc might? Anyone have direct experience in this situation with pea puffers and a multi-week vacation using an auto-feeder? I'm looking for self-sufficient solutions/input, as I'm not really wanting to go the fish-sitter route/etc.. and might nix the pea puffer idea if it really had to come to fish-sitters.. Thanks! Burt
