I have been trying to feed my tetras mosquito larvae everyday but we have been having heavy rain that washed out where I had most of my larvae but the last few days it was full of them again so my tetra will eat well tonight. My two plastic bins I was also using only had a few each day. I give them a little fish food before the larvae go in.

I have noticed that my tank seems to stay a little cleaner with live food compared to flake. They really do not leave any larvae behind.

Just a side question, have you noticed the colours changing? I read somewhere that the colours really pop when they have natural food.

Even if it doesn't I'm sure they much prefer the larvae over the flake!

I have noticed that my older neon tetra that have been eating live larvae seem to have a brighter blue and red color. The new younger tetras which have not been eating as long are not as colorful but that could be also stress of being in a new tank.
