Glad to see your fish are doing well Jon.  You'll love your tilapia.  The White Brook White Niles are a fantastic strain, and we've been managing and improving them for a very long time.

Let us know if you need anything or have any questions along the way.  We're always happy to help.  If you haven't already done so, you might also want to take a look at our basic Tilapia FAQ at

Take Care!

Hey Darrin,

I am running two systems, I have tilapia in one and goldfish in the other.  I didn't intend to have one warm and one cold, it is just that I am heating one for the tilapia and when I stabilize I will introduce tilapia in place of the goldfish.  Where I live, I think it will be hard to have cold water in the summer.  I'd love to experiment with trout one day, but have assumed that it will be easier to prosper first with tilapia.

I don't have enough experience yet to tell you about water temp and plant success.  For me, the amount of UV and air temperature in my greenhouse has been probably the biggest driver.  Also, the amount of nutrients I have in my system will probably not be enough for fruiting plants, but the lettuce and herbs should do well.

Jon, thanks for posting this. I was curious how they shipped fingerlings.
I see you're running a dual system in your greenhouse. Is one for cold water fish?
I am considering adding a trout tank in addition to my tilapia. Any idea how the growth rates between warm water and cold water will compare? Does the water temp influence your seed choice?
