Background: The issue caused by the amino acids from the costly fish feed in the growth of Genetically Improved Farmed Tilapia is the incredible cost of fish feeds. The study's aim is to look for an alternative & cheap fish feed. The research identified Genetically Improved Farmed Tilapia (GIFT) growth & survival rates in the HAPA using formulated sweet potato granules & commercial feeds for 60 days as basis for the development of a Technology Guide. The experiment method has been used in the research. Results: The findings showed that the three formulated feeds have lower protein (20.33, 19.3, & 19.6) yet with higher fat (24.1, 15.69, & 10.72) than the commercial (24.1%, 3%). The initial & final weight in grams, length in centimeters & width in centimeters were highest on T1 then followed by T2 & T3. It was with the use of T1 which proved to be an effective feed. Conclusion: The ingredients utilized in the feed formulations are possible substitution of fish feed & the advancement of its usage is commendable.
