I have 10 saulosi fry , they are 3 weeks old. I'm going on vacation next week, and I will be gone about 5-7 days .
What do I do to feed them ?
I feel its too long to go without feeding them at such a young age. I have an eheim feeder I was going to use for the main tank , but I don't have one for the growout tank.
Any advice would be appreciated

Neighbor? I don't see any way out of this problem without getting someone to feed the fishes once or twice whilst you're away. Or possibly giving the fishes a few rocks with heavy algae growths to nibble on? :fish:

Do not put food blocks like "weekend feeders" in the tank while you are gone, this is create more toxins than nutrition.

Either no food, neighbor feeding or the auto feeder.

The Eheim feeder or most others can be used for fry food but you will have to tape off the slot opening so you get the correct amount they need. Definitely test it for a few days before leaving to be sure you are feeding the amount you want.

Ok thanks,
I got someone to come. They will be fed once a day from Tuesday to Saturday. But on Thursday. They won't be fed. Will they be ok? I'm assuming, yes as they are almost a month old
Yes, they'll be fine for a day. Just make sure the person coming over doesn't overfeed them.
