If you have or are planing to get mosquito larvae I would suggest mosquito eaters as they are small and live barres if your water is right. I had them in a 100 gal setup in the garage that was prone to mosquito and they did great. they would go to town on the larva that emerged after every water change. Also work great in ponds and can handle cold weather as good as goldfish. But back to your question most of my community fish would eat the larva to some degree although I would say the bigger the fish the less interested they were in the tiny snacks.
