Will anything go wrong if mosquitos and small types of flies keep ending up in the tank?
They must be going for tha actinic blue lights. Or will the goggas be nice meat substitude. I think the bristle worms will sort it out.

I'm sure plenty of them end up in the sea, and any spare food will get snapped up by one of your tank mates.

I can understand at the shore, but deeper at the reefs, surely there are not goggas flying around there.
But a mosquito and a cpoepod must be about the same stuff, except the wings. Any gogga experts out there?

I had these stupid christmas beetles drowning in the tank. The same beetles that come out at night and mostly attack Rose shrubs. These I take out. As they end up in the overflow. That is also why I do not use incecticide on my roses and scrubs. Never knows where the bug has been.
