WTB Oreochromis aureus - Blue Tilapia

Anyone local raising/breeding Oreochromis aureus - Blue Tilapia and willing to sell a few fry/fingerlings? I've seen shipping ranging from $80-$140 +$2each for ~25 minimum 1"ish fingerlings which I find to be a LOT when I am not experienced with them although they are supposed to be very resilient fish. I just want a couple of male/females to start trying to raise them for another outdoor aquaponics project for the spring/summer and then I'll move them indoors as the weather gets cold. I've read that they breed like crazy so I don't need a lot as I'd like to take my time raising them until they too can reproduce.

Anyone (local) willing to part with a few for a good price? I can pick up them up at your convenience.
