The present study was conducted to assess the effect of three types of feeds on the growth of Thai pangus (pangasius hypophthalmus) from July, 2016 to Sept., 2016 at Durgapur in Comilla, Bangladesh. Growth performance was influenced by the feed type. All treatments were carried out in triplicate at 2 acres and average initial weights of Thai pangus were 150 g. Average final weights of Thai pangus were 650 g, 620 g, and 600 g with specific growth rate of 1.11110769%, 1.11109677% and 1.1111% in T1, T2 and T3 respectively. Feed conversion ratio were estimated 1.9727 in T1, 2 in T2 and also 2.0325 in T3. The result showed a typical increasing trend of final weight and specific growth rate of Thai pangus along with the increasing of feed protein level. The production cost depends on protein level of diet. This study recommended that the quality and cost efficiency of feed should be considered along with its protein level to get a profitable growth of Thai pangus (pangasius hypophthalmus).
