I have a tank inside my room without a filter
and I've been noticing the water getting very thick
lately. I also noticed a load of mosquitos on my arm
yesterday... how am I suppose to solve this problem
without adding fish that can eat shrimplets...?

Don't let mosquito lay eggs in your tank, or remove eggs from the tank when you see them floating. They lay eggs in a raft that looks like a black sesame seeds.

Shrimp wont eat the larvae.

I really dislike when people want to add fish or snails or something just to take care of a problem.

I mean just keep an eye on the tank for mosquito larvae.

Alternatively, put a top on it.

If there's no filter on the tank, then I guarantee it is too small for fish anyways.

I have a 300 gallon pond in my yard and it has a waterfall filter and aerator, does nothing against mosquito, haha. They just find the one quiet spot in the pond and lay their eggs there. Hate the bastards, but one good things, I have endless free live food for my other fish.
