Skin colour is one of the most significant factors in determining the attractiveness and, thus, the commercial value of ornamental fish. In the present study, an attempt has been made to assess the effect of Delonix regia (Gulmohar) on the colouration of goldfish (Carassius auratus). Experimental fish species (Carassius auratus) were cultured for 90 days. The experiments were carried out in glass aquariums. The experimental diets were prepared with Delonix regia powder as a carotenoid source. One set of control and three sets of experimental groups were maintained. Three different experimental diets and one control feed were given twice a day to all the fish.
