Los organismos seleccionados para los bioensayos fueron peces, conocidos comunmente como Guppys (Lebistes reticulatus), los cuales fueron seleccionados teniendo en cuenta su importancia ambiental como bioindicadores, distribucion geografica (presentes en la quebrada Menzuly), tamano, facilidad de manejo en condiciones de laboratorio y moderada tolerancia a las sustancias toxicas presentes en las aguas residuales (Escobar, 1983).
