Each group comprised 300 larvae. Larvae were fed fresh live brine shrimp Artemia salina and artificial dry food LARVIVA ProWean. Significantly higher (p<0.05) survival was observed in black and white tanks in comparison with grey tanks. Significantly lower (p<0.05) size heterogeneity was observed in red and grey tanks compared to clear, black, green, and blue tanks, and in RD-H compared to WH-H, WH-M, WH-L, CL-H, CL-M, CL-L, BK-H, BK-M, BK-L, GN-H, GN-M, GN-L, BE-H, BE-M, BE-L, GY-H, and RD-M compared to WH-M, WH-L, CL-H, CL-M, CL-L, BK-H, BKM, BK-L, GN-H, GN-M, GN-L, BE-H, BE-M, BE-L, and RD-L, GY-L, GY-M compared to WH-L, CL-H, CL-M, CL-L, BK-H, BK-M, BK-L, GN-H, GN-M, GN-L, BE-H, BE-M, BE-L. Based on our results, peled larvae are independent of light intensity. Rearing of peled in black tanks can be recommended for the highest survival.
