Fish Food

3-Aug-11

We bought 3 types of fish food from Roach Feed and seed in Garland, TX. My intent is to keep 10 pounds from each of the three fifty bags and try them out with the fish. If they eat all three, I’ll keep the smaller higher protein pellets for feeding fry when they get big enough. At least this way I get to learn about three feeds.

Here is the info for the label on the bag:

  • How To Feed…
  • Game Fish Chow® Product is a complete and balanced diet that is ideal for feeding to bluegill, catfish,
  • minnows, bass, carp, and other fish that normally populate ponds.
  • For best results, feed as much Game Fish Chow® Product as the fish will consume in 15 to 20 minutes.
  • If feed is completely consumed within 15 minutes, gradually offer the fish additional feed. If feed is still
  • floating on the surface after 20 minutes, the quantity of feed offered should be decreased. If you overfeed
  • you will reduce water quality. Feed at the same time each day so fish will expect to be fed. Twice a day
  • feedings are best during high fish activity.

Reduce the amount of feed when water temperature exceeds 85ºF and do not feed when water

temperature exceeds 90ºF or in hot, still, cloudy weather.

Q & A

What size pellets should I use to feed my fish?

It’s been said before to feed pellets that are the size of the fishs’ eyes that you are wanting to feed. http://forums.pondboss.com

A better answer is read the manufacture’s documents. See Tilapia Feed Info Chart below.

Example: For AquaMax Grower 400
Feed 1.5-4 pounds of feed per 100 pounds of fish per day or,
Feed 0.15-0.40\pounds of feed per 10 pounds of fish per day.

Tilapia are strictly warm water fish, and cannot be over-wintered outdoors in most of the U.S. Ponds are often stocked for Tilapia grow out over the summer. Recirculating systems are also used. Many recirculating systems are indoors and kept warm for production throughout the year. Since male Tilapia grow faster than females, it is advisable to use an all male population. Many Tilapia growers purchase all male sex-reversed Tilapia from fingerling producers who specialize in sex-reversal. Typical market size for Tilapia is 1 pound or more. Larger fish are desired for the fillet market. Under optimal management and feeding conditions, Tilapia require 9-11 months of growth to reach market size.
