Abstract: The Acute effects of Alkybenzene Sulphonate detergent with the trade name "kiln" to Clarias cariepnus and Oreochromis niloticus fingerlings was investigated using biostatic bioassays and continuos aeration over a period of 96 hours. During the period of exposure, the test fish exhibited several behavioural changes such as restlessness, rapid swimming, opercular movement, loss of balance, respiratory distress, haemorrhaging of gill filaments on the dead fish. Mortality increase with increase toxicants. Dissolved oxygen in from 0.2 - 4.0mg/l, for Clarias gariepimls and 0.8 - 0.3mg/l or Oreochromis niloticus during the study. There was a rise in alkaiinity from 90 - 180 for Clarias cariepnus treatment, while that of Oreochromis niloticus was stable (7.40). The rise in the alkalinity explains more clearly the death experienced for Clarias gariepnus.
