This study aimed to examine the effect of camel’s urine against growth of Chroococcus sp. The algae farms were divided into five groups, the first group (I) is the control group, contained 100 ml from Chroococcus sp. algae, the second group (II), contained 100 ml of Chroococcus sp. alga with 1 ml of camel’s urine, the third group (III) contained 100 ml of Chroococcus sp. alga with 2 ml of camel’s urine, the fourth group (IV) contained 100 ml of Chroococcus sp. alga with 3 ml of camel’s urine, and the fifth group (V) contained100 ml of Chroococcus sp. alga with 5 ml of camel’s urine. All groups were examined during the time periods (the first day, the second day, the third day, the fourth day, and the fifth day). The results showed that all concentration of camel’s urine caused a significant decrease (p<0.05) in the rate of growth of alga over all periods of the experiment.
