Ornamental fish is one of the fisheries commodities that can be used as a source of foreign exchange income, and has its own beauty to attract the interest of ornamental fish lovers. One of the things that determines beauty in many species of ornamental fish is color. Color is a parameter to determine the value of ornamental fish, which is a brighter color, the higher the value of fish. Spirulina sp. Flour has a high carotenoid and protein content, each of which plays a role in increasing color intensity and growth. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of concentration Spirulina flour to the color quality and growth of koi fish (Cyprinus carpio). The method used was experimental with Completely Randomized Design (CRD) using 4 treatments 5 replications. The dose of feed used is (Control), (dose 1%), (dose 3%) and (dose 5%), Color quality measurement using Adobe Photoshop CS8 software. The frequency of twice-daily feeding for each treatment resulted in color quality with the best value (3.0200%), absolute length growth (0.9780 cm) and absolute weight growth (3.7240 grams).
