Diana Many states or counties have a mosquito abatement or vector control department. Many of these will give away Mosquito Eaters. These are a fish that looks a lot like a Guppy, but are more aggressive, and more adapted to a wider range of conditions.

AirstoND Keeping a strong circular current or just flow and agitation might help.

In Florida mosquito fish are FREE!, probably someone on this forum can send you some fry.

Eldachleich Try rice fish. Most garden centers carry them for about $1 each.
Literally uncaring of water conditions. Uncaring of temperature. They even thrive in 106 degree stagnant water.
And they are mosquito eating machines.

Is it planted?
Is the water very hard?
What does the temperature do through the day, and through the year?
What size is the pond?
Is there a lot of water movement?
Thanks, got the idea.

Pond Mosquito Control

I live in Phoenix, Arizona and would like to know what fish can prevent mosquitos from breeding in my pond. Thanks.
