    Hi, if there is anyone who will take my livestock and keep and look after for 2 weeks will much be appreciated. I live near Northgate and will be leaving the 6th of Feb.
    It is only fish. I do not want to take the risk of a auto feeder. If anyone is willing please let me know.

    I would suggest a tank sitter.

    Removing fish and introducing into other systems can be problematic.

    LFS can be an idea, but costly.

    As Dallas said catching fish out of a reef tank is not easy.

    okey I have phoned a few LFS and they do not look after livestock, but I hear you get feeder block that you put in your tank and lowly disolves and feed the fish for 2 weeks. Has anyone used this?

    If you purchase a decent auto-feeder like Eheim, they can be relied upon to dose food when they are supposed to.

    what about RO water top-ups?

    there's a couple of members in your area, perhaps you could rather get one of them to baby sit your tank...
