2 Questions ??

ok, I have 2 more questions for everybody. You all have been so helpful, and I (and the fish) appreciate it.

Here they are:

I keep stagnant water in my bird bath since I float water hyacinth in it. I noticed a lot of mosquito larvae in there today and promptly went to the business of collecting a bunch and feeding them to my fish. They ate with great gusto and enjoyed their fine meal.

Afterwards I wondered if that was ok to do? Could I infect them or hurt them in any way by doing this? I guess I acted first and wondered afterwards.

The second question is that now two of my three clowns are paling out drastically when I feed them. The other one stays brightly colored. Are the two grey ones going to be fighting soon for dominance?
