PeterJ Posted September 24, 2006 Report Share Posted September 24, 2006 Just thought I'd put this in for anyone after an alternative/additional live food to bbs. For most of the year I get enough mosquito eggs to keep two young (<4 week old) spawns going. I have ice cream contianers on shelves next to the house and I spend about 2 minutes each day collecting the rafts. Potato peels keep the water stinky. Each raft contains 50-200 eggs (or so I've read). They are a light yellow/cream colour when freshly laid and darken in an hour or so. This is an average day's harvest. If the nights are warm and still you get more. They hatch in a day or two depending on the temperature. They can be floated in the tank (good for staggering feeds if you're not going to be around) or hatched in the jar where they can be fed and raised (good for gut loading).
