As we pulled in we saw an older gentlemen sitting by the water and I couldnt blame him. We were greeted by the wonderful sound of a waterfall, the tropical landscaping, and the tall trees that cast a wonderful shade all over the property. He walked us around the property telling us all about how he got started to where he is now. They converted and old swimming pool to what was the now beautiful tilapia pond. What would have been a hot tub area was now a bio filter!
We talked for about an hour and he was SO friendly. He told me all about his setups how they work, what they have learned, how to keep our fish happy, raising his rabbits and breeding the compost worms underneath the rabbit cages. We drove carefully home trying not to hit any bumps since we had a bucket of fish. Now we have 11 little baby tilapia swimming in our pond. Within a couple months they will be large and breeding! While our own little pond set up is dwarfed and sad looking compared to the set up they came from we hope to have a productive pond where we can harvest our own fresh fish from.
Are you inspired to create your own tilapia pond? Check out how we did it!
