I have a son that works and lives in Hiram.  So during the summer and fall we go up that direction almost every weekend.

Would love to see your system and pick your brain some.

Thanks Keith,

  Everything I had read online  said 7-10 days depending on the water temperature, so I was not sure if I should catch her and put her back in the main tank.  I put a little food in the tank and she is still not eating, so hopefully I will have baby tilapia in a couple of weeks. :-)

Keith thanks for the post. We have Talipia in a 250 gal IBC tote inside our greenhouse and the water maintains in the mid-high 70s year round is that too warm for perch or bluegill?
