"You are what you eat" applies to our fish as well. If you want good healthy nutritious fish, you have to feed them a healthy nutritious diet. we all want the most mass out of what we put into our fish, but feeding them just high protein isn't necessarily healthy and nutritious. looking at the nutritional content of several feed stock particularly for tilapia, a mix of duckweed (Lemna.M) for the high protein percentage, black soldierfly larvae for the high protein and lipid content, and chia seed for the high omega-3 and omega-6 content should be more than sufficient to produce healthy and highly nutritious fish. what's even more exciting about that is that all of those feed stocks are easily produced in quantity by ambitious DIY'ers
Necro much?

Feeding fish dog food is an interesting idea, I checked my dog's food and see both flaxseed and salmon oil are in it (of course don't know if it's the right ratios for fish.) Have you had any long term issues K98?

Due to reasearch, not experience, it seems that a combination of Black Soldier Fly Larvae, Crickets and vegetable food waste would make up a great combination for Tilapia feed. Both BSFL and crickets are high in protein as well as multiple nutrients like calcium, potassium and phosphorus, which are essential for healthy growth in fish and plants. Any one experience with such combination?

I also found out that food thats high in nucleotide rich foods, like lentils, mushrooms and various animal products can improve tilapia growth rate as well as reduce feed input rate. A study has shown that an added 0.2% nucleotide supplement can reduce fish feed input by 25%. Thats incredible but i couldnt find anyone who has every tried it.
This is the study: https://www.researchgate.net/publicatio ... E_IN_DIETS
