Re: NFC: LIVE FOOD




	I do it too. I have a 20g tub on the patio with some killies. 
I don't change the water often since I have about 5 gallons of Vesicularia
dubyana (java moss) in there too. The mosquitos, however, do not hit the
water and are not highly attracted to the light (as much as moths and
beetles).
