Have you ever tasted one? How fast do they grow?..probably not a commercial food source for a reason, but who knows, give it a try!

They apparently taste pretty good but I haven't tried them, this is based on an old book from the 1970's on fish farming where they grew Tilapia along with Oscars to control the population. I have no idea how they were prepared :dontknow:

Slow growing I think, my brother had a couple at one stage in a 4 ft fish tank. But maybe in a larger tank they would grow quicker.

No i planed to put them in 500 gallon fish tank and one breeder tank of 90 gallon tank with 2 breeder pairs and and 15 oscars for eating
And i will get them from pet store.and they have a pretty good growth rate about 10 inches in a year which is about 1 and a half lb
