Abstract

Morinda citrifolia, commonly called noni fruit, has some effect when used in the treatment of fish parasites, such as Argulus. Noni fruit at different maturity stages have active compounds and therapy effects against parasites. The level of the fish's health can be seen from a hematology observation. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of noni fruit of different ripeness stages against the erythrocytes and leukocytes total in goldfish (Carassius auratus) infested with Argulus. The method used in this study was experimental with a completely randomized design (CRD) involving six treatments and three replications. The treatments used were conducted on healthy cometfish as a control (P1), infected fish with Argulus (P2), infected fish with Argulus soaked in noni fruit in the 1st maturity stage (P3), infected fish with Argulus soaked in noni fruit in the 2nd maturity stage (P4), infected fish with Argulus soaked in noni fruit in the 3rd maturity stage (P5) and infected fish with Argulus soaked in noni fruit in the 4th maturity stage (P5). The results showed that noni fruit in different maturity stages significantly impacts the treatment effectiveness. The total of the erythrocytes and leukocytes reached a normal level in P5 when the color characteristic of the fruit was pale- yellow and the firmness was fairly hard. The total number of erythrocytes and leukocytes in the comet goldfish reached normal values, as follows; 13.86 x 105 cell / mm3 and 18.76 x 103 cell / mm3.
