Advice for Newbie
I have a 6000 litre open water storage tank in my garden which is used to irrigate the garden. I live in Spain so unfortunately, this tank is regularly infested with mosquito lavae. I'm considering getting a few goldfish to try to solve the problem. The tank is in sun for most of the day but there is always some part of it that is in shade but because of the sun, there is a large amount of green, slimey algae growing in the bottom of the tank and floating on the top of the water although the water generally is very clean as it is used and refilled at least once a week.
I have never kept fish before so I don't know the first thing about them. My questions are:
1. Are the goldfish likely to solve the mosquito lavae problem?
2. Will the algae be harmful to the fish?
