Penaeus monodon larvae were reared from zoea1 (Z1) to mysis3 (M3) using two different algal feeds, Chaetocero calcitrans and Tetraselmis chuii. Artemia nauplii were added to both treatments at mysis2. Mean survival and growth rates in both treatments were different at 5% level of significance on the second and third day of culture, but did not differ during the mysis stage and the end of the 8-day culture period. Z3 and M3 larvae fed with C. calcitrans had a lower crude protein but a higher lipid content than T. chuii-fed larvae. Differences in carbohydrate content were noticed in M3 larvae. The implication of the findings are discussed.
