This work aimed to investigate the effect of dietary Lactococcuslactisand Bacillus subtilison the immune responses, intestinal microbiota, and resistance to pathogens of Oscar, Astronotus ocellatus. During 70 days trial, 300 juveniles (8.96±0.033 g) were fed diets enriched with L. lactisand B. subtilis. The treatments included 150, 300, 450 mgkg-1of dietary L. lactis(LL150, LL300, LL450); 150, 300, 450 mg kg-1of dietary B. subtilis(BS150, BS300, BS450); 150, 300, 450 mg kg-1of diet an equal mixture of L. lactisand B. subtilis(MIX150, MIX300, MIX450); and a non-supplemented control group. At the end of the rearing period, histological, immunological, and intestinal microbiota indices in treatments were investigated. To evaluate disease resistance, 15 fish in each treatment were infected in each treatment by Aeromonas hydrophila. The results showed that adding B. subtilisand L. lactis, particularly in MIX300, reduced the anaerobic heterotrophic bacterial microbiota and increased lactic acid bacteria (LAB) in fish. The highest white blood cell (WBC) level was recorded in the LL150 group. The lymphocytes in fish fed LL150, LL300, MIX150, and MIX300diets were changed andneutrophils of LL150, LL300, LL450, MIX300, and MIX450were significantly increased. Monocytes in fish fed MIX300and MIX450diets raised significantly. The IgM, ACH50, and lysozyme levels in fish-fed diets enriched by bacteria, especially in LL450, were significantly higher than the control treatment. The intestinal villi in LL450, BS150, and MIX450were significantly higher, showing lower damages than the other treatments. The survival rates of the infected fishes were higher in MIX150and MIX300 groups.
