Abstract

The effects of organic and commercial feed meals on water quality and growth of Barbonymus schwanenfeldii (lampam fish) were studied. Experiments were carried out using organic and commercial feed for 16 weeks. During the experimental period, water quality which includes dissolved oxygen (DO), pH, chemical oxygen demand (COD), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), ammonia (NH3), nitrate (NO3), total suspended solids (TSS) and water quality index (WQI) were measured. The growth performance measured included the fish body weight, total length, specific growth rate (SGR), feed conversion ratio (FCR) and survival rate (SR). The fish weights, length and SGR in commercially fed group were higher (p < 0.05) than the organic fed group. Meanwhile, significantly lower FCR was observed in the commercial fed group. No mortality was observed between both groups. Conversely, the commercial fed group had significantly lower DO, COD, pH and TSS concentrations and significantly higher (p < 0.05) WQI, BOD, NH3, and NO3, than organic fed group. From the results, it is suggested that better water quality was observed when B. schwanenfeldii was fed with commercial feed than organic feed which lead to better growth performance.
