The postlarvae were maintained in 5-l round plastic aquaria and provided with aeration for a 28-day feeding period. Highest survival rate of 100% was obtained when the postlarvae were fed with Diet-B. Growth, in terms of weight and length was highest in postlarvae fed with Kyowa Hakko and mysid feeds. Using T. philippinarum as control, this experiment showed that feeding with Diet-B, Kyowa Hakko and mysid feeds resulted in similar or better growth and survival rates of P. japonicus postlarvae.
