Mosquito Fish are a unique and helpful addition to your backyard pond. This fish is known for eating insect larvae and algae, which makes them very beneficial. They will help reduce the quantities of mosquitos on your property while keeping your pond looking clean and beautiful. If larvae or algae become scarce, be sure to supplement their diet with freshwater flakes. They prefer to have plenty of plants to hide within. If your pond is deep enough and aerated, you do not have to worry about the Mosquito Fish during winter.

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
