Zeolite and perlite are natural volcanic rocks with ion exchanging properties. This experiment was carried out to determine the effects of different dietary levels of natural zeolite and perlite on growth performance, apparent digestibility coefficients of dry matter and protein, ash contents of bone and scales as well as blood parameters in common carp Cyprinus carpio. Five experimental diets tested were a control diet, and zeolite and perlite additions at levels 2.5 and 5%. Each treatment was… CONTINUE READING
