The endemic betta fish (Betta dennisyongi) was a species of freshwater ornamental fish native to Indonesia which has been successfully domesticated but it has low survival rate and growth. One way to increase the survival rate and growth of farmed fish is by administering turmeric probiotics. This study aims to analyze the best dosage of turmeric probiotics to increase the survival rate and growth of domesticated betta fish. This research was carried out experimentally. The treatments were control, turmeric probiotic 1.5 mL 100 grams feed, turmeric probiotic 3 mL 100 grams feed, turmeric probiotic 4.5 mL 100 grams feed. The parameters tested during the research were survival rate, daily growth rate, and feed conversion ratio and water quality. The analysis of variance test on the data was analyzed using the SPSS 25.0 program with a 95% confidence interval. Treatments that are significantly different will be further tested using the Duncan test to determine the best treatment. The results of the study showed that giving turmeric probiotics for survival rate gave results that had a significant effect (P<0.05) but had no significant effect (P>0.05) on the growth of betta fish. The use of turmeric probiotics 3 mL 100 grams feed can increase weight gain, length gain and survival rate of domesticated betta fish.
