As we know that, the washing soaps and detergent powders are important one to the human for washing cloths and other items of houses. It indirectly mixed with aquatic environment and create problem to aquatic organism. Hence, the study was carried out the biochemical analysis of Common carp (Cyprinus carpio) in different concentrations of detergent powder in different hours. The sub lethal dose of detergent against the fish was 6ml for 24 hrs. The Chi-Squire test revealed that the significant difference was observed statistically (X2= 146.244, P=0.000, Df 16). Vast behavioral changes were recorded against the detergent exposure. One way analysis of variance showed a significant different among the total carbohydrate content of various experimental group fishes (F=35.365; P=0.00). The SNK test revealed that the total carbohydrate content fish was significantly differed (P<0.05). For total lipid content the one way analysis revealed that the lethal concentration and median lethal concentration were highly influenced (F=11.150; P=0.01). For total protein content that the one way analysis observed that the lethal concentration and median lethal concentration were highly influenced (F=45.124; P=0.00).
