I have two guppies and one dwarf Gourami. I will be gone for one week. Every morning I need them fed, checked on, and their light turned on. In the afternoon I need them fed, checked on, and their light turned off. My friend will be watching them and the fish will stay at my house which is less than half a mile away from her house. How much should I pay her?!?

How can a fish sit?

Wow, that's an unusual, but interesting question. The point is that they are your "pets" and you want them looked after. I don't live in the UK, but if I were in the same situation I would offer $25 a day because of the two trips to your house. What that is in UK pounds I don't know.
Why would you pay her ?if I was helping you out I would be offended if you offered me money. Go for your week and offer to return the favour .a chance to repay will come up but a chance to be paid for a favour is unlikely .The opinion of an old man .

One fish supper?
Offer to pay their gas cost, and then if you know they are short of money double it. if they are not then gas money and a small gift like candy or flowers.
I would not expect,as a friend, to be paid for helping out..a small gift by way of thanks when you return ought to be ok flowers..chocolates..??
Exactly minty.
Nothing. I'd be embarrassed if my friend offered me money to do them a favour. Return the favour at some point.
Guppies and gouramis are not high maintenance at all (and don't need feeding twice a day either). I don't know why you don't get a timer for the lights and a block food for the week you're away (1 block you drop in and leave). Anyway in your situation I might offer the petrol money if she's going to drive and other than that just bring back a small gift.
And PS they don't really need the lights on at all while you're away, aquarium lights are mainly for human's benefit not the fish.
Fish sitting presumably involves taking someone else’s plaice

Wish I thought of plaicing that here;-)
