Mozambique Tilapia - Wild Color Type (Oreochromis mossambicus)
Our line of Wild Color Mozambique Tilapia is a 100% pure strain. They are extremely disease resistant and very prolific breeders. These are perhaps one of the easiest strains to breed. They reach reproductive maturity at 3.5-4 months of age. An excellent selection for systems that experience extremely hot Summer temperatures. Performs well in both freshwater and full strength sea water.
Males are dark colored (nearly black) with red tail edging and white chins when in spawning condition. Females are an olive color. Males and females tend to grow at a very uniform pace. NOTE: Lead time is currently 3-4 weeks.
