Abstract:

Sixteen species of fish belong to nine families have been stained. This study focused, in particular, on two species which are Cyprinus carpio and Tilapia zilli due to their existence in the Iraqi internal waters. Alcian blue and Alizarin red have been used in staining the samples of study. This study was prepared to describe the differences between Cyprinus carpio and Tilapa zilli families. Some of the anatomic features have been appeared by which the diversity and the difference can be studied in the muscular tissue and the skeleton for both species and some other species of the study. The objective of this study is the possibility of classification and diagnosis these two species by staining the bones and tissues.
