Tilapia in a barrel

Dothan, AL

#1 Mar 20, 2008
Can a person successfully raise 40 tilapia in a 55 gallon barrel like the catfish in a barrel? With only an aerator and draining and replacing 15 gallons per day of water from the bottom of the barrel I will try. Does anyone have any input on this? I'm new to the aquaculture experience. Here is my website if you want to follow the progress I will begin to post the experiment on 3/28/08 when I get my fish. Please give any info you think I may need!

I'm kind of late to reply to this thread, but... how has your experiment turned out? I too would really like to know a little about this small-scale tilapia experiment.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
