View Full Version : Man can tilapia eat a lot of plants!

I put a bunch of bladderwort and duckweed in an outdoor container pond with a 5" blue tilapia in it.

He ate it all overnight.

Not that I care. I read tilapia eat plants along with algae.

Got a plant problem in a warm water area?

Look into tilapia.

Opened my eyes!

Tilapia can eat a lot of anything. :D
Mine would eat all day long if I let her. The only problem with them is that they get SO BIG. Just wait until yours is pushing 1.' Mine is going for 15" at the moment. :rolleyes: :)
