    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: :)
