This research aims to study the effectiveness of an extract from toxic lionfish spines (Pterios miles) against two types of germs (Pseudomanas) and (Klebsella penumania) by analyzing the toxic substance for inhibition of growth of the bacteria on solid media. The spines were sampled and the toxic compound from the spines was extracted for analysis.

The experiment was conduct with one replicate of each concentration for periods approved in the research, and the results of the improvement of the germs strains were recorded against the concentration impregnated tablets that have been approved for the toxic extract, also against the industrial antibiotics.

Where the diameter of the inhibition circles was measured in centimeters around each tablet, and a comparison was made between each of the effectiveness of the toxic extract and the effectiveness of industrial antibiotics in order to evaluate and determine which is more effective.

Found out through this research the inhibitory efficacy of lionfishs spines extract against the growth germs types in this study, but it differed according to the concentrations used and achieved the best result in the effectiveness of the  extract at the cured concentration. In addition, the toxic extraction was better than the used antibiotics.

Keywords: Scorpaenidae, Pterios miles, Pseudomanas, Klebsella pneumonia
