Hi everyone. I'm looking for a local source for Blue Tilapia that I can go to and pick up fish from. The shipping from out of state sources makes it unrealistic for me to purchase from them.
I appreciate any leads.
I saw you posted on free fingerlings group, Sam will probably have some as the weather warms up. I just bought a bunch of comet goldfish from petsmart and walmart until I could get some tilapia from Sam (Free Fingerlings for Aquapons)
I have alot of fingerlings but I cant really give them away if you are interested give me a call 3524277430 ask for Lonnie I am in ocala area.
My tank is only about 200 gallons (IBC). I haven't set up my second tank yet. I imagine a dozen is more than enough to start out.
Thank you very much.
Thanks so much for your offer.
Things are a little hectic right now. I'm still trying to make sure that my tank is ready for fish. So far I've lost a few goldfish, but I think it's getting better.
Is now a good time to present tilapia weather wise? I'm concerned that it's not warm enough, but then again, I don't know how cold blue tilapia can withstand comfortably.
Thanks for your time and offer. Hopefully I'll be able to take you up on it soon.
