If you are looking for some high quality Tilapia stock, I have some available currently, and I'm shipping out on days when my local temps are 40 degrees or higher. They come from a line I've been working on for quite some time, and they are fast growers.

Fry and one inch fingerlings available at the moment.

kellenw,

I received a small group(25) of Blues from you on the 16th of June and now less than 2 months later I have some over 5 inches. I had always heard that the Blues were slower growers than the Niles but these have proved that incorrect. To go from 1/2 inch to 5 in 6 weeks is really unbelievable, I put them in a 300 hundred gallon pool filled with water lilies and fed the 6 times a day. I am happy to recommend your fish you remind me of me an old retired fish farmer.

Thanks for the update Larry. Sorry I missed your post for so long. Sounds like the tilapia are doing great! Our line of Blues are indeed very fast growers. They still lag behind our Nile lines, but not by much. A big reason why our Niles grow a bit faster than the Blues is due to their slightly longer time to reach reproductive maturity. The Blues generally will reach this at about 4-4.5 months, while the Niles tend to take around 5-5.5 months.

Thanks again for the update!
