QT question

I have a question regarding going on vacation during a QT process.

 

Right now Sushi my son's oranda is in a 20g QT tub with .03% salt, and tomorrow will be the end of round 2 for PraziPro.

I am leaving for vacation Thursday morning and returning Tuesday evening. My plan was to do 100% WC and add salt back to .03% on Wed night and also fasting that night until I return on Tuesday and then starting back the prazi schedule round 3 doing an 100%WC before of course.

Does this sound right, or should I go about in a different manner. 

 

I am just nervous leaving my fish alone in a cycled tank never mind a fish in QT

 

Any input greatly appreciated :)

Yeah, that could be problematic if the QT is uncycled.  Definitely, fast him and I would try to get someone to Prime the tank if possible.  You could also try putting an ammonia adsorbing resin (zeolite) in the QT filter :idont

So, one fish in an uncycled QT, no WCs from Wed night til Tuesday when you get back?  How big is the fish?  Is anyone available to add Prime?

He's about 3-4 inches head to tail. I can see if my neighbor will add prime.  If not I know petsmart has some ammonia absorbing filter stuff...it's either by Fluval or another Co
