Hi, I have a lot of fresh mosquito eggs in standing water, which I grow other things in, like my daphnia, and I fed some eggs to my Betta today and he Loved them. My question is, is it safe to feed mosquito eggs to bettas or will they get internal blockages?

I have never heard of the eggs being fed, just larvae. I cannot tell you for sure whether they are safe or not because I have never tried them myself.

Like the other person said, we can tell for 100% certanity but I'd assume it's safe as long as the water they were in did not contain any parasites etc. I do think the betta would be totally fine with mosquito eggs as well as larvae but if you notice even a slight difference of anything in the betta, id adivse to immediately stop feeding.

As they would most likely encounter them in the wild I would think they are safe to eat in moderation.
