The quality of water is an important criterion for evaluating its suitability for drinking, irrigation and plankton diversity and fish culture. The influence of monthly and seasonal changes on the physic-chemical parameters of water body. Therefore a study has been conducted on the Mankondur fresh water lake in Karimnagar District, Telangana State, India. The study was conducted during June 2020 to May 2021.The water quality parameters considered in the present study water temperature, Transparency, Total Dissolved Solids, pH, Dissolved Oxygen, Carbon di Oxide, Total Hardness, Total Alkalinity, Chloride, Phosphate, Nitrate and Biological Oxygen Demand. The present observations revealed that Chlorophyceae species were dominant followed by Cyanophyceae, followed by Euglenophyceae and Bacillariophyceae were observed during the study period. There were percentage of Chlorophyceae (45%), Cyanophyceae(25%), Euglenophyceae(17%) and Bacillariophyceae (13%). The study helps in better understanding for the management of the manakondur fresh water lake for intensive fish culture.
