feeding slugs to Tilapia

Started Jul 1, 2013 0 Replies

My garden (outside) has been over run with little brown slugs, wondering if they would make good fish food for my Tilapia? I threw some in to test and they gobble them up, spit em out, gobble them up…Continue

Hi,

Just read your posting regarding fingerlings in the Kootenays.

I still have 7 tilapias left and healthy, 3 male, 3 female, 1 undecided.

4 or them are 15 months survivors, the other 3 are 4 months old.

The females have never reproduced, although all 3 have been maimed in previous attacks.

Both batches are from David Kwok in Vancouver.

I presently have minimal conditions for my fi as I've been moving a lot and investing resources and time in building a mushroom business, but they help feeding my greens and the incoming outdoor beds.

My offer is simple:

I you have the right set up and time and attention for breeding them, take 1 male and 2 females. 

You get 50% of the fingerlings for you and your friends on this side of the Koots.

I get 50% of the fingerlings for myself and my - future - friends in Creston and Cranbrook, to rebuild my stock over the summer, in time for the greenhouse this Fall.

And we start the Koots Tilapia CSA this way.

Deal?

Cheers,

CM

Hi Heather, How many tilapia are you looking for? I know of a source in the Okanagan.

I tried to send you a private message with the contact info but it made me send you a friend request first. Once you accept it I can send you the message.
