The application of RICA (Research Institute for Coastal Aquaculture) liquid probiotic bacteria proved to be able to prevent attacks of both types of vibriosis disease and White Spot Syndrome Virus (WSSV) through improved pond water quality. This RICA liquid probiotics is coated using maltodextrin with 3 variations of concentration which are then formed into probiotic effervescent tablets. Apart from making it easy to distribute, this solid probiotic is easily applied without fermentation such as the use of liquid probiotics. The aims of this study was to determine the physical characteristics of probiotic effervescent tablets from maltodextrin coatings with different concentration. The concentration maltodextrin as coating materials were is 20%, 30% and 40% (b/v). The parameters test are average weight, friability, hardness and disintegration time. The results showed that the effervescent tablets of probiotics with a concentration of maltodextrin 40% had a mean weight higher than other concentrations at 798.88 mg. While the effervescent tablets of probiotic with a maltodextrin concentration of 20% had a lower friability and disintegration time compared to other concentrations of 0.05% and 12.96 minutes. And has a higher level of hardness that is equal to 10.89 N compared to other concentrations that is 30% and 40% concentration maltodextrin. The concentration of 20% maltodextrin was the best treatment of this study.
