I know adults can go 5 days without food no problem, but I've got some guppy fry right now, and I'm wondering how long they can last without food?

They're no bigger than 1 cm long, and they're in sort of a home made in-tank container.

I'll be away for about a week, and I'm getting someone I trust to feed the fish once or twice while I'm away. Will just one or two feedings in the week be OK for the fry?

I'm going to say yes... fish even fry can go a long time without food. Most likey any food you put in there that would last ( Daphina, vingar eels, fairy shrimp, etc... ) they would just gorge on anyway. And then have nothing. They will be fine with a couple feedings. their growth might not be as fast! But they'll be fine.

I nev er fed my guppy fry since the parentgs always get at the food first but mine eat by picking on the plants and ornaments.
