    Aquatic utrics may also work. I think the trays are too small for fish-which would probably kamikaze to the floor sooner or later anyway.

    On the other hand, you could just place a lot of your D. capensis or a few pings in tiny pots in the water dish...so when the mozzies emerge and try to take off they get eaten by the Cps.

    I've always wonder if you could use pots of sundews and a nep or to as a barricade for a war on ants...LOL
    1 Nxventrata

    D. muscipula & D. muscipula 'Red Dragon'(barely)

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.

    Drosera capensis

    why do fish do that?
    i had a wonderful waterfall pot display in my front yard, and no matter how many or few fish i had in it, they always jumped out and commited suicide.

    i thought temp, or bordom, or food...
    nothing worked to keep them in.

    and hope that skeeter problem is controlled.

    Whipster, seriously speaking, since you guys are heading into the warmer months, you may want to consider the Mosquitofish or good old guppies.

    Patch, not so seriously speaking, perhaps... it is... you?

    I vote for emtying the water periodically. I hate using chemicals.
    or you could get an aquatic CP aldough for some reason my U. gibba always looses it's traps. grows like crazy but not traps! maybe too many nutrients in the water... after all, I DID have a fish there and snails which poop like crazy.
