Well, normally this wouldn't happen- at least on such a large scale, as fish are BIIG fans of eating mosquito larvae. I'd recommend just adding the fish as planned and letting them take care of the problem.

im from alabama so ive seen alot of mosquito larva and they are always at the surface of the water. they hang upside down with a feathery-ish tail at the very top of the water with their head hanging straight down. the picture looks similar to mosquito larva but im thinking its something else. mosquito larva wouldnt be hiding in the gravel

Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

They sense movement when you walk close to the tank and dive down into the gravel- tricky little bugs!
