Default Ray without food can last how long?

curious abt if really need to go overseas, what is a safe period that ray can go starving without any issue.

aro for a big one can go a month no issue... what abt rays?

asking for knowledge so newbies can know without worrying too much.
esp i do go short trips to JB overnight.
and might have some other trips 4days where no one at home.


5" = days
8" =
10" =
12" =
15" =

if bad , i might need to find boarding tank from anyone ahahhaa

will take this time to pump it up... feed mp morning and night daily
mine is a small eater and damn slow....

must push the mp to near its front then eat.... not like my motoro last time ... gobble the food like mad.

and this BD of mine... also dun like to eat till full....
morning is 1 cube, at night is 2-3 cube
my mp is cut till 3-4 cube size for easy feed.
if i cut too small like bits , then it dun like..... so ignore.
only cube or bigger piece then eat, as like if it like to chew it.

hmmmmm

Train your ray to take pellets. Then can use auto-feeder to feed ray when overseas.
