Abstract:

Ornamental fish keeping is a popular, easy and stress relieving hobby and enterprise. A study was conducted to examine the effects of environment and different diets on growth performance of aquarium fishes like Pearl Gourami (Trichogaster leeri), Angle (Pterophyllum scalare), Molly (Poecillia latipinna) and Gold (Carassius auratus). Twenty five sample of each fish were fed with three different diets like live earth worm (LEW), mixed feed and prepared granulated feed (PGF). All fishes were cultured at environment having pH range of 6-8 and temperature from 22-28 ⁰C. The selected fishes were fed with different types of feed twice in a day for 45 days and their performances in terms of growth and survival were determined. It was found that the parameters like length gain, weight gain and specific growth rate was higher in fishes fed with mixed feed, followed by live earth worm (LEW) and prepared granulated feed (PGF). Survival rate was also higher in fishes fed with mixed feed, followed by live earth worm (LEW) and prepared granulated feed (PGF). It is observed that desirable growth and survival might not be achieved with same feed in Angle Molly and Gold fishes.
