This work was done by carrying out a comparative study on the effect of dry moringa olifera leaves as a feed (sketting feed) additive in different proportions on the growth of clarias gariepinus fry. The compacted feed (10g, 20g and 30g) and the control experiment all in three replicate were labeled treatment one, two three and four respectively, were experimentally used in feeding the fry for two weeks. And it was observed that the compacted sketting feed with moringa olifera at 30g gave the best results on average weight, average length, ammonia content, PH, mortality rate, average number of fishes and temperature. Therefore moringa olifera is an excellent additive to sketting feed in the production of clarias gariepinus fry.
