I think that if you are "only" going away for 7 days you don't have to brumate them. They should be able to manage a week without food.

:Planning my two collards 1st brumation (They are very healthy and have adapted and eat well).

:I probably wouldn't brumate but we are going on vacation and have no one to care for them.

:I plan on putting them in my frig (I'm using thermometer now to gauge coolness) and I'm worried about if they'll have enough oxygen for at least 7 days, until I can get back and monitor their brumation.

:any help appreciated!
