Going on a trip, feeding fish question

I am going on a trip out of town starting tonight. I asked a housemate to feed my two goldfish while I am away every night. I normally feed them 2 to 3 times a day, but I was wondering if asking my housemate to feed them just once per day would be enough. Or should I ask them to feed my precious Goldies every morning and night? I want to make sure they are okay when I come back by next weekend.

I have two brands of food. Omega one and aqueon. They are both pellets. I try to alternate between the two to keep it fun for the fish (hopefully).

I do go to work in an hour but will be back home in afternoon to finish getting ready for my trip.

They will be perfectly fine with once a day, will help to make sure they aren't overfed while you're away too

Yea I always rather have others under feed my fish than over feed. Keeps the water cleaner if you know what I mean lol

Almost every weekend I do an over night visit to my Mum’s.  If I am gone two or more nights, I ask one of my housemates to feed the fish at least once per day I am gone.

Of course, they still look hungry by time I get back home.  I know Charley always tried to look hungry but somehow she can always look more hungry than usual.
