Introduction to the Tilapia fingerling system Plug and Play

After the fish are transferred from the incubation system to the tilapia fingerling system Plug and Play, the fry need about 3 weeks to grow to 0.5-gram fingerlings. The fingerling system consists of two fish tanks which are very easy to maintain and disinfected or clean between each batch of fry. Please note that the fingerling systems of tilapia and African catfish are similar in setup with the only difference that the tilapia systems have an aeration module to provide the system water with enough dissolved oxygen.

Specification of the system

    • 2x Polypropylene fish tanks with two outlets; one for return to sedimentation tank and one for draining the tank completely
    • Sedimentation filter tank (mechanical filtration) allows for removing all the solid particles from the system water flow.

    • Pump tank in which pump, freshwater supply and overflow pipe are installed.
    • Frame (out of SS304) with adjustable stands for easy system installation.

    • 1x 40-watt VGE UV-C unit with SS304 housing (made in The Netherlands)
    • 1x Air pump (160 W – 240 V) to aerate the moving bed filter tank
