Minimum tank dimensions for breeding a pair of Nile Tilapia

Recommended Posts


I would need to breed pairs of Nile Tilapia (one male, one female), in a recirculating water system which includes biofiltering. The fish would be raised from fingerlings and bred upon maturity. I do not intend to keep each pair for more than 1 year of age. I am wondering what would be the minimum tank dimension for each pair. Of course I could use 500L tanks but, needing at least 50 tanks, it does not seem economic. 

Thanks for your comments.
