Study on physicochemical parameters such as temperature, pH, dissolve oxygen and nutrient (total nitrogen, nitrate, nitrite, ammonia and total phosphorus) was conducted in the lake in Taman Tun Fuad Stephen within January 2007 to February 2007. Samples were collected from the lake on a weekly basis. During the analysis, the in situ parameter had been recorded which include pH, temperature and Dissolved Oxygen (DO) while the nutrient analyze had done in lab. The result of One-Way ANOVA showed that there were no significant different among the in-situ parameter at each station (P > 0.05). Total mean of the temperature was 27.58 ± 1.39 °C, pH was pH 6.48 ± 0.183, and dissolve oxygen (~O) was 4.00 ± 0.626 mg/L. While for ex-situ analysis, it had showed significant different at some station (P < 0.05). Total mean of ammonia was 0.802 ± 0.883 mg/L, while total mean concentration of nitrite and nitrate were 1.422 ± 0.764 mg/L, the total nitrogen was 4.261 ± 0.884 mg/L and finally the mean of total phosphorus concentration 0.5863 ± 0.200 mg/L were recorded during the study period. However, nutrient in this lake is suitable for aquaculture activity but pH and DO shows that the lake is under pressure of certain activities.
