This study aims to determine the effect of adding boiled betel leaf (Piper bettle Linn) with different doses on the survival rate of goldfish (Cyprinus carpio) infected with Dactylogyrus sp.

Treatment A (86.7%), B (100%), C (93.3%), and D (86.7%), parasite intensity and density of Dactylogyrus sp., observation of clinical symptoms and water quality. The data analysis used was the Analysis of Variance (ANOVA).
