I don't know how well it would work, mosquito larve are rather small. You could probably even use a small paper or plastic cup to sort of scoop up a few if your net doesn't work :)

Ok I can do that. I just can't afford another net, lol.

I wish he liked the pellets, they're color enhancing. XD

Saix was bought at Petsmart November 2010.

He started off light peach and grew dark spots as he got older. He glows green in direct light.

He is now completely blind.

bwaha, well I bet mosquito larve will enhance his colors as well XD. Bettas' colors improve generally when in clean warm water and when they've got good quality food.... and I mean, live food is a fresh as you can get and packed with protien.

Can they bite you? And how long do they stay small?

Well, they're larve, so not really. As for how long, I would toss any that aren't eaten back into wherever you got them from, because I wouldn't want to risk some of them growing up overnight and becoming mosquitoes.
