    I don’t know about fry, but I was advised not to feed my discus while on vacation and I had no problems. I was gone about 10 days. Not sure about fry though. Anybody?

    Your adults and juveniles no problem. Last feeding 24hr before you leave with one final water change.
    As far as the fry, I believe you will lose them

    Water quality stays high if there's no feeding. For fry, I use an automatic feeder. They don't get nearly as much food and obviously water quality will suffer.
