Butterfly pea plants contain quite high protein and many pharmacological content, the telang leaf is very good as a feed additive, in order to increase antioxidants in fish. This study aims to determine the effect of butterfly pea leaf meal on feed to the growth rate and the feed conversion ratio of tilapia. This research has been carried out at the Ciparanje Inland Fisheries Area Hatchery, Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences, Universitas Padjadjaran. The study was conducted using a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) of 4 treatments and 3 replications. The parameters observed include growth rate, feed conversion and water quality. Data were analyzed using Anova and continued with Duncan Test if there were differences in the results obtained. The results showed that the addition of butterfly pea leaf meal to tilapia feed showed daily growth rates and feed conversion that were not significantly different in each treatment. Based on these results it can be concluded that the addition of butterfly pea leaf meal to 15% in feed, does not have a negative impact on reducing the growth rate and feed conversion of tilapia.Pages: 190-192 | 562 Views 66 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
