Mosquito larvae problem help

I have an uncycled 5 gal tank in my bedroom filled with mosquito larvae. It's attracted a lot of mosquitoes so my dad bought 4 black phantom tetras to eat the larvae. I don't want the fish to die since I like them a lot, but I really need to tackle the mosquito larvae problem. Any suggestions?

Your fish won't die and in fact will do better with the diet of excellent live food.

The tank is uncycled.

As long as you monitor the ammonia in the water and do required water changes to keep it in check (possibly daily), you should be ok.

I suspect if the tank is filled with mosquito larvae it may not be as uncycled as you think. They are, after all, producing waste!
