Tilapia is a fresh water fish. They grow very fast and they are often used in aquaponics systems.
Tilapia is pretty easy to grow. This post will teach you how to grow them.
Start by deciding what species you want to grow. The most common are Blue tilapia and Nile tilapia.
The Blue tilapia grows pretty slow but it is the most cold tolerant species of tilapia.
The Nile tilapia grows much faster but only in tropical conditions.
Then decide how many tilapias you want to grow. You should put 5 to 6 fingerlings per square meter of water surface area.
If you already have adult tilapia and want to breed them, then you should put 1 male for every 3 females.
The recommended temperature for tilapia is between 28 and 30 degrees C.
The growth rate will decrease if the water temperature is below 20 degrees C.
Algae is their most common food in the wild. But tilapia also eat pellets and dog food.
