Hi I am leaving to go on a trip to Wisconsin to is Thursday July 15th and I have everything prepared for the fish except I don’t know what to do about water changes. I will be gone about one week maybe two and I have a 7 gallon fry tank and a 20 gallon long tank with 10 platys ! Any advice or tips would be nice thanks!!

I wouldn't worry too much about it. Best defense would be throw some live plants like hornwort to use up any buildup of nitrates while you are away. I have fish breeding in tanks that haven't seen a water changes in months.

I agree with throwing in some live plants if you have some available, but be careful what plants you use.  Some, like hornwort, will often melt back pretty bad when introduced to a new environment.  I wouldn't want that to happen when I wasn't there  to remove the dead plant matter.
