Hey folks - growing red, black, golden and mottled (koilapia) tilapia here. They love warm water!
Water temperature in tanks can reach lows around 70f in the early mornings here in winter. I would like to encourage spawning in my quarantined fish (3 females/ 1 male). Should I be putting a heater on that tank? They just want to go dormant this time of year. I want them to think it is time to spawn year round!
Anyone know mean daily temperature for optimal breeding? I was thinking at least 78f.
