Pengaruh Kadar L-Ascorbyl-2-Phosphate Magnesium Yang Berbeda Sebagai Sumber Vitamin C Dalam Pakan Terhadap Pertumbuhan Ikan Patin Pangasius Hypophthalmus Ukuran Sejari
This study was aimed to determine optimum dose of L-Ascorbyl-2-Phosphate Magnesium in the diet of patin, Pangasius hypophthalmus fingerlings. Five isoprotein and isocaloric diets containing different dose of L-Ascorbyl-2-Phosphate Magnesium, i.e. 0, 25, 75 and 100 mg/kg diet were used in this experiment. Fish with an average size of 5.00±0.11 g were maintained at a density of 15 fish per aquarium. Fish were fed three times a day at satiation, for 40 days. The results of study shows that vitamin C content in fish body increased as the vitamin C level of the diet increased. Similar pattern to vitamin C content was also found in protein retention, lipid retention, daily growth rate, and feed efficiency (p< 0.05). Thus, it can be concluded that the most optimum dose of L-Ascorbyl-2-Phosphate Magnesium as vitamin C source for patin fingerlings in this experiment was 100 mg Vit C/kg diet. Higher dose of L-Ascorbyl-2-Phosphate Magnesium than 100 mg/kg diet however need to be further verified.
