In the present study was investigated that, the influence of different feed additives viz., fish meal, shrimp head meal and soy flour on the breeding performance of goldfish. These three major ingredients were mixed in the feed at three different concentrations at 20, 30 and 40%. Totally, 15 numbers of goldfishes were stocked in 50 L capacity FRP tank for breeding. Every day the fishes were fed with 5% of the body weight. The experiment was conducted in the adult fishes for duration of 60 days and the sampling was carried out once in fortnight. Among three different concentrations tried, in fish meal containing feed with inclusion level of 30% concentration got best hatching survival rate (98%) With compared to the control fish 87% of survival rate was observed.
