- This study is aimed to evaluate the growth and survival rate of red tilapia (Oreochromis sp.) cultivated in a biofloc system brackish water tanks with the addition of different carbon sources. The experimental treatment was addition of different carbon sources to the media, namely molasses (B), tapioca flour (C), white sugar (D) and without carbon sources or controls (A). Test tilapia used were sized 3.71 ± 0.11 cm with a density of 300 fish / m3 maintained for 40 days. Fish kept in tanks with a volume of 200 liters filled with sea water as much as 100 l with a salinity of 17 ppt, added with 10 ml / m3 probiotics and carbon solution with a C / N ratio of 20: 1. The fish were fed with commercial feed (38% protein content), 3 times per day as much as 5% / body weight / day. The addition of probiotics and carbon is done every 8 days. The results of the analysis of variance (ANOVA) showed that the addition of carbon sources had a significant effect on growth, survival rate and feed efficiency. The results showed that the best growth, feed consumption and survival of red tilapia were obtained in treatment B (molasses).
