The best type of fish for a 150 Gal that can go without food for 3 weeks or so possible ? by Andy Louie
As I am a fish lover and will get a automatic feeder but love Chilids or Oscars but thanks to some that it might not be feasible for me. I return back once a year for around 1 month or less. Any good brands for automatic feeders for a 135 to 150 gal aquarium ?
