These critters are hand raised by Dr. Thad and son Hayden in our tanks and fish ponds, and will help clarify your aquarium or pond water--plus they are entertaining to watch. They will compliment your pond or aquarium and will not harm plants or fish.
The Mosquito fish are great assets for controlling pond/ aquarium detritus and other pesky insects. They are one of the few varieties that can survive Northern winters as well as warmer southern waters. All three can survive in indoor aquariums or outdoor ponds. They will eat insects and left-over food from other fish and require very little maintenance. These critters make a great overall tank and pond cleaner and they are entertaining to watch. They are one of the best additions to small or large aquariums or fish ponds.
Mosquito fish are often used specifically for mosquito control and they are prolific breeders. They are also live-bearers and great feeder fish. They can eat up to 300-mosquito larva a day and have 60 babies at a time. They are very hardy fish when acclimated to their environment. You will receive a mix of sizes (mostly medium because they ship better and more males survive) and at least 10% extra in case of DOA. Females can grow up to 2.8 inches and males 1.6 inches. Females can reach sexual maturity in as little as 30 days.
Shipping: Will be FREE through priority mail and in bags on Monday and Wednesday. The boxes are well insulated although if the destination is below 30 degrees Please Wait Until It Warms Up Again So The Snails/Clams Survive Shipping. In the chance there is DOA, clear pictures must be taken within 2 hours of them arriving still in the bag (Dead Clams or Snails Will Be Gaping Opened). Please make sure to count all of the living before messaging because we put a lot of extras in case of DOA. Ship to continental US only. You should not buy this product if you live in Wisconsin due to import laws--It is your job to know your laws and buy accordingly.
About Us: Dr. Thad is a research scientist trained at Cornell University. Son Hayden is a college student majoring in agriculture and technology, with a big interest in aquatic systems. We have raised critters in our tanks for a long time, now we have extras and decided to sell snails, clams, and fish for others to enjoy. We keep our prices low because we will only use the money to sustain our tank populations.
