The stage you are talking about is the "bull", just prior to hatching, that
is the most dangerous stage, the larvae can hatch and you have an
interesting fish room..
I have always collect larvae as early as possible and left
it in the tank. In many of my tanks, I place mosquito rafts, I have never
seen a larvae when the rafts are in the tank. there is constant food for
all of the fish.
In my book, I explain saving rafts in the refrigerator,
and other ways to use larvae. I also collect constantly and freeze the
larvae for the winter. I never let my collection points get to the
"flippystage" it's to close to adult mosquitos and aggravation.
