So teach somebody otherwise you will have problems, if you are away for that long. Get one of your closest friends and train them how to take care of them or leave written instructions.

One important thing.. "NEVER" buy a bunch of feeders and leave them in your tank with/for your Ps to eat while your gone away for vacation!! As you know, most Ps dont finish up their catch and usually love the thrill of killing instead of devouring completely. You'll only come home to a smelly room, cloudy tank, and probably dead piranhas inside a high nitrate tank. Best thing to do is buy those weekly feeder pellets, or those vacation feeder timers. Either way you'll have a dirty tank when you get home, but a sure shot that your fish would still be alive.

I did that with for a weekend when I went fishing. Man talk about a massive waterchange I had to do. Fish heads floating, water was so cloudy I couldn't see from end to end. Thats was the last time I did that.

Does your lfs offer in home tank service? I've found they do a great job while away and the cost is alot less than coming home to a bunch of dead fish.
That would be a good idea, depending if you live in an illegal state or if the person your dealing with isn't/wont be a snitch. Alot of LFS in Cali get busted alot and usually try to find scapegoats and hold deals w/ Fish and Game if they ever get busted.

i would never leave keys to strangers even if im giving them money to take care of my fish. you never know what might happen. they might just rib your house and say someone else broke into it. just get someone i guess..... thats they best way i believe. other than that you can buy dividers and divide all of them up. and starve? sund cruel, yes it is but then again P's can survive weeks without food in the wild.
