I stumbled onto this article about using composted rice straw as a suplemental protien source I don't recall seeing this discussed anywhere on here before so interested to know if anyone has heard of it before or has tried it and with what results?
That is the great thing about Tilapia. They will eat just about anything. I found that they love algae, duckweed, and anything I threw in the tank that was plant based. It is important to find low cost, non-fishmeal based foods. Otherwise it really isnt a sustainable system. Very interesting.
You indicate that they will eat anything and I have heard this before. However, I do not have the same experience. Fish food, duck weed and worms get eaten quickly but veggies or other bugs seem to be ignored.
I would love to hear what others are feeding their Tilapia.
