Duckweed. (Small leaf as it is, the tilapia fry really loves snacking on these plants)fish treat - duckweed

Azolla. (Another tilapia’s favorite next to duckweed.., eating the roots first then the leaves)fish treat - azolla

If you plan on setting up an aquaponics system, try to also learn how you can culture these fish treats or perhaps how you can produce organic fish meals. Just a thought that will surely help you succeed in your aquaponics endeavor. Have a nice day!
