Abstract :

Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) have an important economic value and one of the leading commodity on freshwater. The prospects of tilapia marked by the continuously increasing of production. The lack of tilapia (Orechromis niloticus)can be solved by accelerate the growth. One way to accelerate the growth can be done by giving the proper feeding. The main function for fish feed is as the main source ofenergy which acts onsupportingthe growth, activityandreproduction,thereforegivenfeed must fulfillthe energy needs forfish. Protein is the main energy source for the fish. The balance between the protein and feed energy should be considered in the composition of fish feed, thus need toknowthe level of proteinandthe right balancebetweenproteinandthe energy contained in the feed in order to achieve the optimal growth. The purpose of this research is to determine the effect of protein and energy balance values ​​on artificial feed againts growth rate and the feed efficiency of tilapia. The methods used in this research is experimental method, using a completely randomized design (CRD) with four treatments and five replications, that is P1 (20%, 2487.80 kcal / kg), P2 (25%, 2451.09 kcal / kg), P3 (30 %, 2414.40 kcal / kg) and P4 (35%, 2377.70 kcal / kg). The obtained data were processed using Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and followed by Duncan's Multiple Range Test. The results of this research showedthatfeeding withthe different proteinandenergybalanceproducingdaily growth rateand feed efficiencythatdifferentlyhigh significant(p <0.01). The best growth of tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) seedsis found in P3 treatment at 2.62%, and the highestof feed efficiencyfound in P3treatment at 24.02%.
