Mosquito Larvae in my water
I'm not exactly sure where I should have posted this.
for the last few days I have been seeing a bunch of mosquitos in my bedroom where I keep my tanks. I am killing 3-4 mosquitos a day. I don't open my windows ever and the front door and the garage door is on the 1st floor while my room is on the second floor.
I think I have mosquito larvae in my tanks. Currently, I have a 10 gal with one betta, 6 neon tetra and 3 otos, a 5 gal bucket of red ramshorn snails and a 2.5 gal with shrimp. The last two have a lot of surface agitation from sponge filters but the 10 gal doesn't. It has a filter but because of the betta, I lessened the flow on the filter.
I'm not too worried about my 10 gal bc I'm pretty sure my fish will eat the larvae sooner or later. Also with my 5 gal bucket of snails, I can change the water and put in water with chlorine in it. I've done it before. The chlorine does not seem to hurt the snails but should kill the larvae.But wht am I suppose to do about my shrimp tank?
