The growth performance of Clarias gariepinus fingerlings (mean weight 0.9 g) fed diets of maggot meal and single cell protein supplemented diet were investigated for 56 days. Nine diet of 40% FM and 30% FM, 10%MM and 20% FM, 10%MM, 10%SCP and 10%FM, 20%MM, 10%SCP and 30%MM, 10%SCP and 40%MM and 10MM, 30% SCP and 10%FM, 10%MM, 20%SCP and 40%SCP. The result of the experiment showed that fingerlings on the diet of 30%FM and 10% MM plus dry pelleted feed (T2) has the best specific growth rate (1.22%), food conversion (2.14) indicating that feed with maggot in combination with other supplemented diet formed better balance diet for the fingerlings. Feed with 30% fish meal and 10% maggot meal is recommended by this study.
