Next, you move to this size pellet, Tilapia Intermediate Pellet. When your fish reach 4”, you start feeding them this pellet size and keep feeding them this size until they reach 6”. This is the first floating pellet in the series of pellets sized to accommodate a full grow out of your tilapia. Floating pellets allow you to monitor how much your fish are eating, helping you to avoid over or under feeding at this growth stage. At 4” and beyond, tilapia feed aggressively at the surface.
An also helps you control the amount of fish food you feed your fish.
Next, you move to this size pellet, Tilapia Ultimate Grow-out Pellet. When your fish reach 6”, you start feeding them this pellet size and keep feeding them this size until they are ready for harvest. Adult tilapia benefit from lower fat contents while still getting a relatively high level of protein. This diet matches that need perfectly. According to several industry studies, tilapia foods high in fat often lead to enlarged livers in adult tilapia, and in extreme cases, liver failure. This can lead to higher than expected late stage mortality. Very few commercial foods available address this problem, but you can rest easy when feeding Ultimate Grow-out Pellets. They contain just 6% fat, while delivering an impressive 36% protein.
Next, you move to this size, Tilapia Fingerling Pellet. When your fish reach 2 to 2.5”, you start feeding them this pellet size and keep feeding them this size until they reach 4”. This is a precisely formulated nutritional content for growing fingerlings. Your Tilapia fingerlings will quickly double in size on this diet.
This slowly sinking pellet helps to encourage aggressive feeding, which in turn grows out strong, healthy tilapia. Extremely high in easily digested proteins and fats to keep fingerlings growing fast.
When you look at the protein and fat content of the Tilapia Breeding and Conditioning Pellets, you will see the difference. This Formula has 6% more Protein and 2.5% more Fat than the Ultimate Grow-out Pellet. That’s because high protein levels have proven to increase overall reproduction rates as well as reproductive success in tilapia.
During feed trials, this diet led to improved egg size, increased total egg production and improved overall fertility rates.
We suggest feeding as a staple diet to active breeding colonies.
Next, you move to this size, Fingerling Crumble. When your fish reach 3/4”, you start feeding them this pellet size and keep feeding them this size until they reach 2.5. This is a slow sinking pellet that delivers food to fish at all levels of the water column, very important in higher density stocking situations. Tilapia growers choose Power Start Fingerling Crumble over other fry and fingerling foods available because it delivers excellent, perfectly balanced nutrition without negatively impacting water quality and clarity.
