    Default vacation feeding

    I have a maroon clown, yellow tang, and a unicorn tang along with two cleaner shrimp, three peppermint shrimp, snails, hermits starfish, anemone. It's a 90 gal tank with sump. My question is I'm going on vacation and not sure how to make sure everyone gets fed. I feed them the food that the tropicorium guys make so it's frozen. Is there a safe dry food that I can put in an automated feeder while I'm gone? I was told that most of the dried stuff has copper in it and is not good for inverts. any suggestions of what I should do for food and auto feeder?

    I have a BC14 with a lid. I drilled a little hole on the lid and attached a cardboard funnel. Taped an auto fish feeder with pellets in it. I also had a floating ring right underneath the hole so that the pellets wont float into filter chamber. Fish learned to eat floating pellets from the ring. No issue with sinking pellets. Went on vacation for 3 weeks. BTW, I also had a DIY auto top off system. Came back after 3 weeks and everything was in tip top shape.
