The result indicated that utilization of rubber seed flour does havesignificantly effect on growth of Gurami (Osphronemus gouramy Lac). The bestresult was achieved by treatment C ( 80 % rubber seed flour and 20% soybeanmeal). Total absolute body weight of 25,66 g, Spesific Growth Rate of 3,83 %/day, food efficiency of 42,08 %, while the best protein retention of 30,62 % andsurvival rate of 86,67 % respectively. Water quality during the research aretemperature of 28 – 300 C, pH of 5 – 6, and disolved oxygen of 4,1 - 5 ppm.
