      If u want to grow a huge tilapia in that pond add one tilapia and a couple other fish such as stonecats and sunfish,don't add another tilapia until perhaps 4 or 5 years pass.
      Nile tilapia tend to grow bigger than most other tilapia varieties.
      If u want my opinion for a 275 gal I would go with the following stock: 1 Nile tilapia,1 redear sunfish and 1 brown bullhead and a fair amount of baitfish such as golden shiners

      Catfish leather is quite easy to make.
      1 remove skin.2 remove any meat still attached to skin (this can be done with a unserrated knife).3 if u want softer leather keep skins in antifreeze for a little while.
      4. Pin skin so it is somewhat stretched on a piece of wood. 5 leave in a shaded outdoor place for 1 or 2 (even 3) days.
      You are now in possession of catfish leather
