This is a proper tilapia breeding colony consisting of a single male and five females. Other combinations will not work on a reliable basis. The picture above shows one of my early experiments with seven females and one male. It did not produce any tilapia fingerlings. I also tried one male with three females and two males with four females with the same poor results.
The breeding colony that you will receive will not be slapped together from some random tilapia snatched out of a juvenile tank on any given day. Instead you will receive a colony that has been together for a few weeks and already proven itself to spawn. Please allow up to ten business days for the colony to be shipped as larger fish require more preparation and forethought than tilapia fingerlings.
Pure strain Blue tilapia fingerlings are only 79 cents each. They are between 30 and 40 days old and can range in sizes from 1/2 of an inch up to 1 1/2 inches.

Hey Folks, I have become more successful with tilapia fingerlings than I ever imagined (or wanted) and I have already outgrown the brand new indoor hatchery shown on my Youtube channel. This was always intended to be a fun retirement hobby not a tilapia fingerling empire, but rather than just quit and walk away leaving hundreds of my friends and customers hanging, I have asked my good friend Mark over at Lakeway Tilapia to take over.
I am proud to announce that Mineral Springs Tilapia is now a part of the growing Lakeway Tilapia family. If you are even thinking about getting into the business of hatching tilapia fingerlings for sale or any other aquaculture endeavor, I cannot encourage you enough to work with them. They have spent years establishing business relationships with state officials, testing labs, feed wholesalers and the supply companies that you'll need to be successful. In fact, every bag of feed that I used in my hatchery was purchased on their negotiated price and every fish that I've shipped was in supplies delivered to me by their hatchery courier. As the number of people wanting to buy tilapia fingerlings from me increased, Lakeway Tilapia sent people help to pack and ship my fish. So officially joining their family just makes sense.
It has been my pleasure answering questions and interacting with you over the years, but spending hours standing on a prosthetic leg in a hot and humid hatchery selling tilapia fingerlings every day was never my dream. Make no mistake though, I am still available if you want to chat about raising tilapia, just visit the contact page and ask for me.
