he set the bucket up for a couple weeks, because just like fish, mosquitoes require certain parameters to lay their eggs in......It could possibly take that long to season the water to their liking

I suggest to anyone who has the resources to try feeding your fish these from time to time..........Its excellent free food and most fish will love them......

I fed my tetra tank about 200 of the larvae the other night.........WOW! about a feeding frenzy!............not a single larvae hit the substrate......All the fish enjoyed the live food, especially my blue tetras, they instantly colored up like i have never seen them do before, unfortunately their new found color only lasted about a half hour.........In about a week, im gonna start conditioning my cardinal tetras with the larvae for a breeding attempt........Right now im just trying to get the breeding tank perfect for them...........

Going to the "That Fish Place" tonight...............They have their entire stock of live fish, plants, and inverts at 20% off this whole week...........Will get some black worms and see how they will do for the tetras, if they dont like them, i have 9 other tanks of fish that im sure will devour them.......
