    Well now that's interesting John. I've never heard of anyone having a stock pond with tilapia. That's pretty cool!

    I only do 25% water change once a month , but I filter 12x the water volume an hour so that helps...

    I used to do freshwater aquariums. At one point I had 8 tanks ranging from 5 gallon to 55 gallons. I did 50% water changes on them all every month, twice a month if the water test required it. Too much work to move so I sold the all when I bought my new house.
