Abstract
The present work has been conducted to study the acute toxicity of three micro pollutants on P. reticulata and D. rerio. The pollutants selected for the study were acetaminophen (paracetamol), carbamazepine and ibuprofen which are widely used as drugs. Both the species were exposed to different concentrations of the pollutant for 24 hours. Their behaviour in the control water and various concentrations were observed using Multispecies Freshwater Bio monitor© developed by LimCo International, GmbH, Konstanz, Germany. The study showed that there is a direct impact on fish species with increase in concentration of toxicant. Acetaminophen was found to be more toxic compared to other pollutants tested.
