Tilapia is very popular for cultivation because the process of enlarging tilapia is easier than other types of fish. In addition, tilapia does not get sick easily, the price of seeds is cheaper, the feed is easy to find, and sales are relatively fast. Even though it is somewhat easier, cultivating tilapia still requires a special method and is not arbitrary. Come on, learn tilapia enlargement techniques to harvest faster and save feed!
There are several things that must be considered in choosing tilapia seeds. First, make sure you buy seeds that are CPIB (Good Fish Hatchery) and CBIB (Good Fish Cultivation) certified. If not, the seeds may carry harmful diseases. Second, choose seeds with uniform color and weight (approximately 30 grams). This aims to provide the same space for the seeds. If not given room for movement, large seeds have the potential to get more space for movement. That way, small seeds will be eliminated.
Tilapia does not like cloudy water. For that, run water that has a pH of 6.5-8.6 at a temperature of 25-30 degrees Celsius. Don't forget to also ensure the brightness level of the water is up to 20-30 cm with a depth of 75-100 cm. To keep the pool comfortable, you must diligently monitor the condition of the pool and change the pool water regularly. You must pay attention to this because water with sufficient pH, temperature, and brightness levels will greatly accelerate the growth of tilapia.
In this enlargement stage, one of the things that should be of concern to you is feeding. The good thing is that tilapia are given food that contains enough fat, carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, and minerals 2-3 times a day. Tilapia belongs to the omnivorous fish species (eating both vegetable and animal protein). Juvenile tilapia usually consume moss and plankton, while tilapia which is in the enlargement stage consumes pellets. Make sure that the feed contains protein of approximately 25%. When viewed from the protein needed in the feed, tilapia feed is more economical than catfish and carp feed. Catfish and goldfish feeds must contain as much as 30-45% of protein to make fish grow properly.
Not only that, you are also required to immediately change the pool water if an unpleasant odor appears so that the pond is healthy again from pests and diseases. The spread of infectious diseases that are transmitted to fish occurs very quickly through water. Even if only 1 fish becomes infected initially, the infection can quickly spread to all fish in the same pond.
Magnification itilapia takes up to 4-6 months to reach a weight of 300-500 grams per head so that it is ready for harvest. Usually the cultivators harvest their tilapia using nets. Before harvesting, make sure that only healthy and quality tilapia can be harvested. If you doubt the health of the fish, here are the characteristics of healthy and high-quality tilapia:
To get healthy and quality tilapia when harvesting, one of the things you need is good feed management. Feed management is one of the determining factors for the success of cultivation because 60% business capital is used to buy feed. Good feed management is measured by the accuracy of the number of doses and the timeliness of feeding.
eFeeder is an automatic feeder that can optimize cultivation. eFeeder has an ejection distance of up to 15 meters which makes feeding more effective and even. That way, the growth of tilapia will be much faster and the size of the fish will be much more even.
eFeeder will also automatically spread the feed on time and in the right size. You only need to manage everything from the palm of your hand through cellphone. Interested in using it? Find out more about eFeeders!
