Effect of different feeds on the growth and survival of silver barb Barbonymus gonionotus (Bleeker, 1849)

Sandar Myint, Htay Htay Win, Win Yi and Nyunt Lwin

An experiment was carried out to examine the effect of different feeds on the growth and survival of silver barb. Three groups of fish fingerlings average weight (0.54g to 1.29g) were raised in aquaria at a density of ten fish per tank with three replicates. Three prepared diets each contains 30% crude protein was supplied 5% of wet body weight of fish daily. Diet A (rice bran + fishmeal) was better for the fish growth (SGR 2.2%) but was the lower survival rate, followed by diet B (rice bran + soybean meal) (SGR 2.08%) with the highest survival rate. Diet C (rice bran + groundnut cake) was poorest growth rate (SGR 1.86%) and the lowest survival rate. Thus, diets A and B resulted in better growth and survival of silver barb.
