Tilapia is accepted in Chihuahua, yelnats. But if you tried "tilipia", as in the heading of your post, it would be rejected as it's not in any dictionary with that spelling.

Just to point out at this juncture, many of the fishes previously placed in the Genus Tilapia have since been relocated to other Genera, such as Sarotherodon. There's also a brace of Genera among the African Cichlids that contain -tilapia as a suffix, such as Chromidotilapia, Astatotilapia, Chilotilapia, Coelotilapia, Cynotilapia, Cyphotilapia (the species Cyphotilapia frontosa is an expensive aquarium fish costing $200 a pop in the US), Hemitilapia, Heterotilapia, Limnotilapia, Paratilapia, Petrotilapia (the species Petrotilapia tridentiger is a beautiful purple coloured aquarium fish, but one with a vicious temperament), and Xenotilapia.

There's also a brace of relations such as Alcolapia alcalicus, which lives in the waters of Lake Natron, an environment most people would consider to be completely inimical to fish life, given that the water of this lake is as as alkaline as a household ammonia solution, and has a dissolved content of sodium carbonate that would kill most other fish.

Here's an image of the nice purple Petrotilapia tridentiger:



The woefully expensive Cyphotilapia frontosa looks like this:



The Dogtooth Cichlid, Cynotilapia afra, looks like this:



And the hilariously named "Eastern Happy", Astatotilapia calliptera, looks like this:



For those who like variety among their fish, the Cichlidae contains something like 2,500 species, of which 1,700 or more are African, and 1,400 or so known from the Rift Lakes.
