Abstract: Four samples of the different fish pond were analyzed for physiochemical properties. The pH ranged from 6.8 to 7.4; Temperatures ranged from 25oC to 27oC; Conductivity ranged from 148.2 to 191.2µs/cm; TDS ranged from 21.3 to 28.6mg/L; TSS ranged from 63.1to 74.7 mg/L; DO ranged from 7.5 to 9.3mg/L; BOD ranged from 2.01-4.01mg/L; Alkalinity ranged from 26.9 to 36.1 while Total Hardness ranged from 2.4 to 3.6. Five heavy metals, Zinc, Nickel, Lead, Iron and Copper were analyzed for different four fish ponds. The concentration of zinc ranged from 0.013 to 0.015mg/L; Nickel ranged from 0.01 to 0.03mg/L; Lead ranged from 0.18 to 0.23mg/L; Iron ranged from 0.29 to 0.48mg/L and copper concentration ranged 0.02 to 0.07mg/L. all the parameter analyzed were within the WHO maximum acceptable concentration in ponds are fit for fish production.
