    well either a family member, or only other option is to throw a LOAD of food in the tank for them and they should be fine (hopefully)

    Hhhhhm, 10 days is quite a long time for them to go without fresh food and being misted. Up to 5 days maybe, but not 10. Any food you put in will go off.

    They are incredibly easy pets for someone to look after and aren't restricting in any way, so I am sure you should be able to find someone who will be willing to look after them for you?

    Failing that, just ring up a couple of kennels and catteries, maybe even small pet boarding in your area and ask if they will look after them.

    Sometimes pet shops offer this facility too.
