Fishes are excellent bio-indicator of heavy metal pollution .Arsenic is heavy metal which effect on behavior of Clarias batrachus. The present study is carried out to evaluate the toxic effect of heavy metal Arsenic on fresh water teleost Clarias batrachus. Behavarioural changes are observed for chronic toxicity test. The two test concentrations 1/10th and 1/16th ppm to the Lc50 at 96 hours as sub lethal concentration which are 1.31ppm and 0.74ppm for sodium arsenate and sub-acute concentration of sodium arsenate for 7, 15,30,45 and 60 days.
