Histological Observation in the Ovary of Ornamental Fishes with Reference to Natrum Muriaticum

Authors(2) :-C. Sudha, V. Gokula

The present study is aimed to determine the efficacy of natrum muriaticum on ovary of female ornamental fishes like Goldfish, Rosy barb, White Molly and Guppy. The histological sections of ovaries show large number of oocytes in various stages of development. Based on changes in ovary, four oocyte stages have been recorded viz. primary oocyte stage, cortical alveolus stage, vitellogenic stage and mature oocyte stage. Depending upon the stages of oocytes in experimental animals it shows that natrum muriaticum has a greater influence in reproductive cycle. The study therefore suggested that natrum muriaticum has a significant effect on the ovaries and advances the breeding activity faster than the control fishes.
