I had read that tilapia were very versatile eaters. As I was cleaning out the junior aquarium I decided to add some of the aquarium weed (egeria densa) to the tank just to see if it’d grow.
Several days later.. I realized that the fish had been snacking on it. This made me feel better because, I was getting concerned that they weren’t eating.
Fast forward another week and it doesn’t seem like the plant has been eaten much more. I believe this is because the fish are now more comfortable with their environment, and worth me, and are now eating the pellets I feed them more voraciously.
