Effect of replacing dietary Caridina nilotica (Fishmeal) with Arthrospira platensis on water quality parameters during the culture of Oreochromis niloticus fingerlings


Author(s): Sumukwo EJ, James GJ, Muohi A and Mutia GM

Abstract: This study was designed to investigate the effect of replacement of Caridina nilotica with Arthrospira platensis at four different levels: 10%, 20%, 50% and 100%, as T1, T2, T3 and T4 respectively on water quality parameters, monitored for 8 weeks in triplicate glass tanks with 300 fingerlings of Oreochromis niloticus fingerlings. No significant differences were found throughout the experimental period (p>0.05.). Temperature ranged from 27.880C to 28.020C, DO was 7.22 to 7.41mgll-1, pH 7.473 to 7.561 and Total Ammonia and Nitrite 0.37-0.81 respectively. All were within the normal range for tilapia fingerlings which enabled them to grow significantly.
