alata was used in this study and feed was prepared from it. Phytochemical
screenings were also performed using petroleum ether extract of the petals.
Freshwater fish Garra rufa was used as a specimen model in the study.
After feeding period, the blood samples were collected from the fish and
haematological parameters were analysed. A significant P value of 0.0093 in
the body weight of Garra rufa suggests that Cassia alata is a
good immunostimulant. The finding suggests that the feed of Cassia alata
