I'm in the process of putting a aquaponics system in place, getting totes today. I am completely green (new to aquaponics). I have a friend that has a breeding pair of Zebra Tilapia that recently hatched a very large quantity of babies (fry?). My friend is wanting to give me the fish but from what I've been reading they look like the greatest option for aquaponic systems? Any comments on trying to use zebra tilapia?
I meant to say "they DON'T look like the greatest option". The following article calls Zebras "the most vicious members of the cichlid family". Ouch
