Various events in our lives drastically disrupt our daily aquarium activities. Having to attend weddings, going on trips, or spending an unexpected amount of time in the hospital for example can all take importance over taking care of our aquarium. If a single-day event comes up, you can alter your aquarium schedule and your livestock won’t miss a beat. If you have to step away for a few days, say to a weekend long aquarium conference, you might have to find someone to check in on your tank and feed your fish. If you can’t find anyone trustworthy, your fish can go a couple of days without food, provided you feed them shortly after your return.
