Thumbs up Survivor baby!

The angelfish have had another spawn. This time, I moved the parents out of the tank with the babies before they could eat them, and accidentally snagged a baby in the bag too! I didn't notice until the baby was swimming around in the parents' tank. I watched it and decided to get it out, but all of a sudden it drifted over to the filter intake, which was unprotected because I didn't plan on having babies in the tank. The baby started wiggling frantically trying to get out of the current, but it drifted closer and closer until it just got sucked up! I thought the baby was dead for sure. I looked in the filter as best as I could (there's not much room for a head between a 10 gallon and 29 gallon tank on the same stand) but I couldn't see anything. I left, got some brine shrimp about 10 minutes later for the other babies, and saw a mosquito larva in the parents' tank! (By the way, it was not the baby and actually was a mosquito larva. I have had an infestation of these in this same tank before and I think there may be eggs in the tank. Please tell me how to get rid of these!) I crushed it, and as I took my hand out of the tank I noticed the baby! It was still alive! It was swimming with the parents in about 5 minutes. That baby was extremely lucky there was no filter carbon at the time and it managed to pass through the biological plates. The baby is now back in the group in the 29 gallon tank.
