Goldfish is one of the most famous ornamental fish because of its body shape and color which was interesting to be maintained. The purpose of this research was to find the optimum dose of pumpkin and carrot flour combination on artificial feed to increase color brightness of goldfish. Complete Randomized Design with four treatments and four replications were used in the experiment. For the treatments, pumpkin flour 15%, pumpkin flour 7.5% with carrot flour 2.5% and carrot flour 5%, were studied. The parameters observed were color intensity, survival rate, and water quality. The results showed that supplementation of combination of pumpkin flour 7.5% with carrot flour 2.5% gave the highest color intensity of goldfish with TCF code 0815 and score 2.11 with 100% survival rate. Water qualities during the research were still in optimal condition.
