The tilapia in the Hippo Cove pool have also had a baby boom this summer. These fish serve multiple purposes, they help to keep the water clean by eating the hippo dung and they also eat the dead skin off of the hippos which keep them clean and free of micro-organisms

Johna Sparks Rabdeau Newman Could you could you please tell me what is wrong with Henry? Thank you
Frank Fuentes I will never eat tilapia again! Ma
Paul Conley Eek! I'll remember this, next time I'm at the fish market. I guess tilapia are what we call real bottom feeders. Ha.
Karin Oder Gallup This is a serious question. What happens with the tilapia waste? In other words, how does the water actually stay clean?
