    First generation hybrids of many species grow larger and faster than either parent in many cases. I keep the T. horonorum to breed with O. mossambica for just that reason. The cross fets to 2 pound in 9 months and males & females are just about the same size.

    Aurea are often hybridized with Nile to produce another fast growing hybrid, but the males are much larger than the females.

    Re: Blue Tilapia

    Iíve always heard a loud bump, bump, bump sound from the tanks outside and could never figure out what it is. I assumed that it was air bubbling through the SLO drains. Now that I have an aquarium for breeding in the house I have it figured outÖ the male makes a really loud drumming sound and swims around with his penis hanging out too get the ladies into his PVC pipe of love.

    In livebearing fish that's called a Gonopod, or Gonopodium. I breed feeder Guppies, and have bred Platys, Mollies, Swords, etc. and it's always a Gonopodium!
