Fish cultivation encourages increased demand for artificial feed, but information on nutritional fulfillment of pellets provided is limited. Supplementof oil in fish feeds can function to increase the energy content and as a neutral fat tangible liquid at room temperature should be noted the effect on the physical quality of fish pellets. In contrast to natural food, the physical quality of feed formulation is important in fish farming given its susceptibility to pellet degradation and leaching nutrients. Six treatmentsincluding controlwith three replicates with setup different of used of oil (coconut and candlenut oil supplement) and added Se (basal diets;mixed of oil without and added Se, coconut oil; candlenut oil added Se, and control pellet with high protein content) informulated. The type of tested feed was dry compressed pellet using pelletizer. Pellet leaching rates were used to indicate pellet water stability. The results showthat the presence of vegetable oil supplement in the diets significantly improved pellet water stability (p<0.05), but theuse of fat into the pit resulted in the same durability as the control diets. Used of oil supplement have higher water stability after two hours in water compared to basal pellets without fat supplements. It improved feeds water stability is one important reason why oil supplement enhances fish growth.
