Minapadi is an integration of rice cultivation with fish breeding in one location. This research was conducted in the village of Talagasari, District Garut Kadungora because this area is thought to have nutrient elements in the form of specific micro and macro minerals that are good for agriculture and fisheries. Planktons are microscopic organisms that form an important link in the life of aquatic organisms. This research aimeds to analyze the quality of water, mineral composition and its effects on plankton community structure in minapadi. The research method used was purposive sampling. Plankton relationship with water quality and dissolved minerals were analyzed using a Canonical Correspondence Analysis (CCA). Sampling was done 6 times in the period May 20 - July 25, 2018. Research shows that there are 31 orders of plankton consisting of 26 orders of phytoplankton and 5 order of zooplankton. Phytoplankton diversity index and dominance over their respective research ranged from 0,5149 to 0,8797 and 0,1203 to 0,4851, while for zooplankton from 0 to 0,8 and from 0,2 to 0,1. The water quality parameters measured primarily by temperature, DO, pH, nitrates, phosphates, ammonia qualify recommended PP 82 2001, third class. There is a concentration of dissolved minerals that exceeds the normal condition nitrates, phosphates, ammonia qualify recommended PP 82 2001, third class. There is a concentration of dissolved mineral exceeds the normal condition K, S, Si, Ca, Fe, Mn, Cu, and Cl, which led to the dominance of the phylum Euglenophyta, Bacillariophyta, and arthropods.
