Between one feeding session and another Felix brought me by canoe to young brood-stock cages.
As Felix threw the floating pellet on the cage, the water surface became a fountain: the tilapias were all seeking food on the surface, struggling each other.
It was amazing seeing the difference in feeding behavior between juveniles and adults.

In the afternoon, while I was sitting on the cages for monitoring the water parameters, I was frightened by a huge fish moving slowly towards me and cages…after screaming and calling the people around.
They told me that it was a silver fish: an innocuous species which likes to come near the cages hoping to receive some pellet wasting during feeding sessions.
