Question feeding Mosquito Larvea to my breeders

Hi I am conditioning my breeder bettas with The Larvea,my question is how long will I feed this to them before I put her cup in his tank so they can get ready to breed?He has made a huge nest under the half a cup and he is watching all the girls on the other shelf.They are starting to get puffy with eggs.Any help is greatly appreciated!

It would probably make a good treat for betta fish but I'm sure that it would cause parasites. So maybe I would suggest fish flakes? Totally not pellets. Those are too small for a million tiny baby betta fish!

I mass feed mosquito larva several times a day for several days to weeks to get them ready to spawn. I usually mass feed for 3-4 days than dump them in the tank together-but I also keep all my Bettas in condition all the time.

I used fruit fly larva for about a week and they were fat and happy and ready to spawn when I put them together, I was surprised by how quickly it happened actually.
