I'm considering trying a similar setup for my Siren lacertina
this summer, but because of potential problems, I am not yet committed to the project. I have a question related to mosquitoes. I do not normally have any fish or other animals with my sirens, but I am considering doing so in this situation. I am concerned about mosquitoes, especially since they now potentially carry West Nile virus in most US states. Is there a known fish that will snack on mosquito larvae that will not bother the sirens or become fast food for them? Alternately, does anyone has experience positive or negative with Bacillus thuringiensis
as a control agent for mosquitoes in situations where it may contact wild or captive amphibians?
