Tilapia - Breeding Part II

I did a short write up on Tilapia breeding, well its an attempt to get them to breed on this post. It was almost impossible to see any new fingerlings or fry since I have Yellow Tail Catfish (Patin) together in the tank. This catfish feed on Tilapia fry.


I isolate few mature Tilapia in my home kit and as previous post they breed but, only a few survived and transported to growbed and stay there.
Above my home kit, all plants removed and I am about to clean it, to my surprise there are hundreds of fry swimming around inside the main tank.
There were eight Tilapia in there and I manage to get all out, not one die during this short stay they were in there. What better they breed.
Fry every where, I need to put all these fry in a safe place so, no other choice but to scoop them away.
Easy does it.
Temporarily placed them in a basin and I need to buy another aerator to ensure they will not die.
Not many but its enough to restock, and once I know how to do it.. its then just a matter of refining to make it better.

I let those bigger pellets soak and eventually dissolved in this basin to provide food, they will require different feed, those more powdery stuff.
Those fingerling in top growbed I need to get them in a better place. This growbed I will transformed into Tilapia breeding nursery bed.
