In trial, 840 Pangasius hypophthalmus which had average weight of 1.33 ± 0.05 gram was used. Fish were divided into seven groups before being fed for 90 days with 0, 1 (C1), 3 (C3), 5 (C5), 1(T1), 3(T3), 5(T5) g/kg of carvacrol and tymol. All treatment groups were planned three replicate and randomly plots method and fish were distributed to groups. It was determined that 3 g/kg timol addition to feed provided the best result in terms of growth performance. Keywords : Pangasius hypophthalmus,Karvacrol,Thymol,Growth performance,feed utilization
